He was asked if he was happy at Juventus and he was asked the same question about Cristiano Ronaldo. He admitted that this season is not being easy.
This week is the international break. Spain are hoping to try and get maximum points from these first three matches in 2022 World Cup qualifying.
This Thursday, Greece will be Spain’s opponents. Morata spoke about Juve and the match in a press conference.
“Cristiano and I could be happier. It’s been a difficult year. We’ve lost some matches because of fine details. I thinks it’s fine. It’s true that when you are used to always winning in the Champions League, it’s difficult being knocked out, but anyway… You have to think that there’s some of the season left,” he said when asked whether he and CR7 were happy at Juventus.
When asked about Spain’s quality ahead of the Euros, he was clear: “The foundations are very good, we play good football and if we have the ball, I think we can beat anybody,” he said.
“My dream is to win something with Spain. You can’t beat what previous generations have done, but that is what I’m fighting for. Euro 2016 would have been better for us had we not played Italy, but you have to look towards the future. You have to think about what’s to come. We talk a lot about the Euros, but we playing for a spot at the World Cup and many teams don’t make it. We don’t want that to happen to us.”
He was asked whether he would recommend Ramos to leave Real Madrid, but he did not give an answer: “With Ramos’ age and his career, if I have to recommend him, he has a problem. He’s the Real Madrid and Spain captain, he always has an eye on his teammates. I can only wish him the best and that whatever decision he makes, he’s happy.”
On the possibility of Cristiano returning to the Bernabeu, he hoped, for Juventus’ sake, that that did not happen. “I’ve no idea. I don’t speak to him about those things. In life, anything can happen, but I hope he stays in Turin and that I can watch him. I want him to be happy and to have him by my side next term.”
He also praised Atletico Madrid’s Marcos Llorente: “He struggled to earn a place there. Everything good that happens to him makes me happy. You don’t have to be his teammate to see how he works and looks after his body.”
He was asked whether he felt more loved by Pirlo than by Simeone. “No, I admire him and respect him. One of the best things that has happened to me was to play under him. I was happy at Atletico Madrid and now I am happy at Juventus. Only those up above know what the future holds,” he replied.
He also thanked Luis Enrique for the confidence he has given him. “I feel important. Lucho (Luis Enrique) demands a lot of me and I’m very grateful to be here.”
