Juventus striker Alvaro Morata spoke to Sky Sports microphones.
“Now I’m more mature, many things have changed in my career in recent years that have shown me football in a another way.
“Iou have to adapt to the difficulties and now I am a more complete player. I am also a father, a family man, and that helps you to become more mature.”
Playing with Ronaldo?
“Playing with him is easy, I have known him for a long time.”
“I give him balls from which other players wouldn’t score. Like in Parma: I made a crossa only he could reach.”
“I grew up having him close and I understand his movements, I understand everything.”
“My job is to take men away from him: he always has 2-3 men on him and if I move to the other side someone follows me and that gives him space.”
“It is a pleasure to play with him, he is one of the best in the history of football, he is fantastic and can play wherever he wants.”
“I can only enjoy him, he is a pride for me, I hope to play with him for a long time.”
“The idea of playing with him and Dybala excites me and makes me happy, I have a wonderful relationship with them on and off the pitch, they are a level above the others.
“I will tell my children that I played with them.”
The celebration against Inter in 2015?
“I remember well. It was a wonderful year and I don’t know why we were cheering and someone threw the glasses.”
“Llorente took them, gave them to me and I put them on.”
“Unfortunately, the fans will not be there on Sunday. We hope the situation will change, these matches are to be played with the fans, even away from home.’
“I can’t wait to have them back at the stadium, I miss them so much but it will still be a special match, we are two of the best teams in Italy and we can’t wait.”
“He’s one of the best strikers in the world, marking him on one-vs-one is almost impossible. I’ll ask for his t-shirt after the game!”
“We have a very good relationship, different from when we were teammates because now he is my boss and I have to follow his instructions.”
“He is always direct, he tells you what he thinks, what he wants you to do for the team.”
“You could already see that, from how he understood football with the ball, it would have been easy for him to be a coach.”
“He can do nothing but well. His first season is certainly full of challenges but we are getting better and better.”
“We will be there until the end.”
“There is a fine line between winning and losing, some things have often happened to us that made us lose points.”
“But we have one goal in mind: we will do everything to win and make our fans proud.”
