Speaking to Cadena SER’s El Larguero radio show, Spain striker Álvaro Morata explained that it is quite normal for Cristiano Ronaldo to be frustrated with Juventus currently underperforming.

Cristiano’s frustration at Juventus

He gives that impression because he is so used to being at the top. It’s nothing to do with Juve because he would be the same at any other club. He seems happy to me but the thing is, he is so used to winning that it’s understandable he feels disappointed – as we all do, but he’s happy at Juve.

Relationship with Cristiano

We talk about everything apart from football. We spend a lot of time together and when we aren’t playing we talk about all kinds of subjects, life, the world we live in, the pandemic in Spain, in Portugal…”

Back in Spain

I’m comfortable living in Italy, I feel at home, but coming home is always a happy moment. Right now I can’t see many of the people I love but I’m still enjoying being with the lads in the squad, we have a lot of fun.

Young players with the national team

There are a lot of new faces, a lot of younger players. You see Pedri and you can chat with him. At his age, I was quite clueless. They seem very mature. It’s great to see them with the national team and watch how they react to it. When I first was called up, I didn’t even see the ball because I was so nervous.

Chances of Cristiano returning to Real Madrid? 

I’ve never thought about that. A few years ago a friend asked me the same question but you know I am not going to answer. I want Cristiano to stay at Juve because I want Juve to have the best players. I hope to have him near but I’ll be pleased with whatever he decides to do that makes him happy.

Your future

When you are out on loan, your opinion counts for little. I was happy at Atlético and I’m happy at Juventus. I’ll know more in the summer. I’m happy here. It’s the start of a new project.
