Alvaro Morata regrets leaving Atletico Madrid’s youth academy

Former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata regrets leaving the youth academy of Atletico Madrid. He left Atletico Madrid in 2007 and joined Getafe. Real Madrid then signed Morato in 2008. He made his LaLiga first-team debut with Real Madrid.

Morata spent two spells with Real Madrid. He won a lot of trophies with Los Blancos. He won two LaLiga titles, two Copas del Rey and two Champions League medals. In between the two spells he played for Juventus and Chelsea.

During his time at Turin, he won two Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia trophies but his short spell at Chelsea was underwhelming.

Morata has now once again joined his boyhood club Atletico Madrid in January 2019 and is playing pretty well for them after the departure of Griezmann.

Morata said during an Instagram Live video with tennis player Fabio Fognini: “When I was a kid, I was a ballboy at Atletico. Then I went through a period where I didn’t enjoy it so much. You know, it’s the path a young kid goes down to be a professional.”

“You start with agents, sponsors. I felt a lot of pressure, I wasn’t starting games. I thought about leaving. Then I spent a year at Getafe and, you know what, it was an amazing year.”

“Then I went to Real Madrid, but my dad and I used to go to the [Vicente] Calderon and I dreamed of playing there. However, unfortunately, I had to play there for other clubs and not with Atletico, but I always wanted to. What I have lived stays, but now I am happier than ever.”

Morata said with a laugh: “[Giorgio] Chiellini, I don’t know if he does it on purpose, but when he meets me, he always destroys me. Sergio Ramos is also a tough defender, while when you go against [Virgil] Van Dijk it seems like you hit a mountain.”
