Alvaro Morata has said he is ready to make his mark in the Premier League and believes he has what it takes to lead Chelsea to titles success both domestically and in Europe.
The Spanish forward made a club-record move to Stamford Bridge in a deal which could rise to £70 million. Antonio Conte turned his attentions to the attacker after missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.
Morata came off the bench to score a goal and set up another in the 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley last weekend.
But the 24-year-old is confident that his side will bounce back from the defeat and will retain their Premier League crown as well as win the Champions League.
“I need to make an explosion in my career and I am at the perfect place, the perfect club to do that, Morata told Chelsea magazine.
“I have all the things I need and if I can work hard, I can make good things happen.”
“I have very big motivation, I always think like a winner and I want to win everything it is possible to win. Last season the team won the Premier League and now we can try to win it again, and maybe the Champions League.”
At Real Madrid, Morata has Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema ahead of him, but still managed to score 20 goals in all competitions for the Los Blancos, despite starting few games.
He came to Chelsea with his cabinet full of trophies as he has won two Scudettos, two Italian Cups, one Italian Super Cup, two Champions League, two LA Liga, two Spanish Super Cup, Fifa Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup with Juventus and Real Madrid.
But he is of the opinion he still needs to work hard and he is at the right club to achieve more.
“It is the perfect situation. I decided to play in the Premier League and I want to play in Antonio’s team. Now I need to work hard, score goals and play well for the team.”
“There are very good players here and I think we can do something amazing. It is hard to leave Madrid but it is not so hard when you come to a club like Chelsea, with these players and with this coach.”
Morata will be looking forward making his Premier League debut against Tottenham on Sunday.
