Mauricio Pochettino recently claimed that Álvaro Morata did not want to come to Tottenham Hotspur, because Harry Kane already played there. The Argentinean spoke with the current rush hour of Chelsea about two years ago, who can still remember the conversation. He denies that he rejected the Spurs because of the presence of Kane.
No, that is not true. I talked to Pochettino and he said he wanted us to play together. But there was no chance that I would come to Tottenham Hotspur. Of course I would have liked to play with Kane, he is a big player and is one of the best pits in the world. When I spoke to Pochettino, however, I was not allowed to leave Real Madrid,”says Morata in conversation with Sky Sports. Last summer he eventually became the successor of Diego Costa at Chelsea.
He is a good player and above all a good person. Diego is my friend and I knew in advance that it was a big responsibility to follow him up. I have tried to do that well,”continues the Spanish striker, who scored 12 times in 25 matches so far,” When we are together at the Spanish team, we often talk about life and football. I am grateful to Diego, because we can talk about everything.
It is good to be strong in the air in England, it is important for a rush hour. In Italy and Spain there is a different game, there are many more crosses given here. But I can make more goals. I’ve had many opportunities and I need to improve myself, it’s my first year and I think I can do a lot better. There is always something I can improve, I’m not perfect “, Morata concludes. He will take the Saturday afternoon with Chelsea in his own house against Stoke City.
