- Alvaro Morata was at Premier League side Chelsea for two seasons before he left
- The Spaniard explained that he almost came to depression at Stamford Bridge
- Morata has been in superb form this season for Juventus in all competitions
Spanish professional footballer Alvaro Morata who currently plays for Juventus has explained how difficult life was for him during his spell in the Premier League with Chelsea.
The 28-year-old striker made it clear that he came close to suffering from depression at Stamford Bridge before he made a move away from the Premier League giants.
During the summer of 2017, Chelsea chiefs paid Real Madrid £58 million for the signature of Alvaro Morata beating rivals Manchester United for the signing.
Chelsea fans were all happy with the signing of Alvaro Morata then, but the Spaniard failed to impress at Stamford Bridge for the Blues.
Morata in 2019 left Premier League side Chelsea and rejoined Atletico Madrid where he revived his football career before moving to Juventus on loan.
According to the report on GOAL, Alvaro Morata explained that he encountered many difficulties at Chelsea before he faced the exit doors.
"I've never had depression and I hope I never do, but I came close. I don't believe it is given the importance that it should.
"When your head doesn't work well, you are your worst enemy. During those times, it doesn't matter what you do, you are always fighting against yourself. Depression is an illness just like breaking your ankle."
Morata and his teammates at Juventus are currently occupying third position on the Italian Serie A table with 55 points after 27 games played so far.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Juventus registered a 3-1 win over Lazio in the Serie A on Saturday night, March 6, in what will remain as one of the classic topflight matches in Italy.
Tension as Ronaldo set to hold crucial meeting with Juventus to reveal where he will be playing next season
It was Lazio who started the game on a high as they began to ask questions in the early stages before they were rewarded with the opening goal in the 15th minute.
Dejan Kulusevski was pressured into trying to pass back to Merih Demiral, only for Joaquin Correa to intercept the ball, run at the defender before turning and shooting through the Turkish international’s legs.
The Old Lady who were without Ronaldo from the start then raised their game and they eventually restored parity in the 39th minute through Adrien Rabiot.
