Alvaro Morata Praises Atletico Madrid Teammates for Helping Him After Difficult Time With Chelsea

​Alvara Morata has praised his new Atletico Madrid teammates for helping him settle after describing his spell at Chelsea as a 'difficult time'.

The 26-year-old returned to his native Spain in this year's January transfer window on an 18-month loan deal, and after scoring a brace against Real Sociedad on Sunday, now has three goals in his first six games for the club. 


Speaking after his goals helped ​Atletico clinch a 2-0 win in ​La Liga, Morata took the opportunity to thank his fellow players for helping him return to form after struggling in England.

He told ​beIN Sports: "Forwards are always judged by their goals, but on the whole I am happy with how well I have adapted.

"I am happy because I have had a difficult time in recent seasons. My team-mates have made it very easy for me to adapt to life at the club."

With the weekend victory ensuring Atletico stay in second, and seven points off leaders Barcelona, ​Morata claimed that Los Rojiblancos needed to win their remaining twelve games to have any hopes of securing the title.

He added: "When you are not just depending on your own results, you just have to do your job and hope.
