Alvaro Morata has lashed out at Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri saying the manager deceived him and forced him to train alone while at Stamford Bridge.
The Spaniard is currently on a long term loan deal with Atletico Madrid after joining the La Liga side in January 2019.
Morata scored six goals and created one assist in the second half of recently concluded season under Diego Simeone.
Having struggled in the first stanza under the Italian boss - scoring just five times in 16 Premier League appearances.
The 26-year-old has however revealed he wants to make his deal with the Spanish League side permanent.
Speaking out about his time at Chelsea, Morata told Goal: "I had a very bad time in London. In the end, I was training alone.
"I talked to Maurizio Sarri and he told me some things that I knew were not going to be as he had said."
Chelsea signed Morata in a deal worth £60 million after Diego Costa left the club in 2017, and enjoyed a bright start in his career under Antonio Conte.
He scored seven times in his opening eight matches, but a loss of form hampered his progress.
He said: "I had lost confidence in myself previously. I was very upset by the opinion of the people in England. I think they caught me in the middle of everything.
"I didn’t quite feel loved or appreciated by the club or the fans. I started very well at Chelsea, but an injury, in the end, leaves you a bit stuck.
"As bad as it was, I still scored 15 goals and won the FA Cup… but I was out of the World Cup, and for me, that was the hardest thing that could happen to me in my life."
Legit.ng earlier reported that Alvaro Morata has traveled to Spain together with his wife and twins ahead of his loan move to Spanish giants Atletico Madrid from Chelsea.
Morata fell out of favor this season at Chelsea under new manager Maurizio Sarri, and the signing of Argentine Gonzalo Huguain means the Spaniard had to leave Stamford Bridge.
The former Real Madrid star who failed to score a Premier League goal for Chelsea since November 4 will now continue his football career with Atletico Madrid.
