Former Real Madrid player and youth product Alvaro Morata, who is currently playing for Juventus, has hit out at Carlo Ancelotti for not treating him properly in the Spanish capital while commenting that Real Madrid are obsessed with a foreigna players.
Morata rose from the youth ranks under the guidance of Jose Mourinho but Carlo Ancelottia s first season at Real Madrid saw Morata relegated to the sidelines with the young striker securing a move to Juventus in the summer of 2014. Looking back at his time under Carlo Ancelotti, Morata has revealed that he never shared a good relationship with the Italian, stating that the manager treated him indifferently.
“I still don’t understand why I went from playing well to being left in the stands at Real Madrid. I didn’t demand to be a starter, but I did expect to be treated differently. My relationship with Ancelotti was virtually non-existent. Allegri keeps a very close eye on me, for better or for worse.”
Talking about the intimidating presence of the BBC (Bale, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo) at Real Madrid, Morata believes that it is very difficult for a home grown player like Jese or him to succeed at Real Madrid. He also commented on Madrida s transfer policy,stating that the club looks to invest in foreign players rather than giving the local players a chance.
“It’s tough competing with the BBC. Jes can do well, but if there’s a forward shining abroad, Real Madrid will want to sign him”.
He also believes that he is better respected in Spain now that he is playing well a abroada while revealing that his desire to get called up for the national team was labelled as a crazya by those around him.
“I’m appreciated more now that I’ve gone abroad. When I left Real Madrid one of my targets was to earn a call-up to the national team and some people thought I was crazy.”
However, despite rumours circulating regarding a possible move back to Real Madrid, it seems that Alvaro Morata has no desire to leave Juventus.
“Even thinking about it, let alone talking about it, would be a show of disrespect to my club, coach and teammates. I feel so happy and comfortable that I have no reason to stop and think about Real Madrid or any other club.”
Talking about his team-mates Andrea Pirlo and Buffon at Juventus, Morata has revealed that he is learning from the best players in the world while commenting that he dare not take a free-kick against Bufffon.
“I’ve admired both of them since I was a kid. It’s impossible to score against Buffon when we play practice matches, so sometimes I just stand behind Pirlo to observe his free-kick technique. I don’t take any, I don’t want to make a fool of myself.a
