London, Oct 30 (IANS) Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata on Monday said he was more comfortable staying in Italy and life here has been stressful.

The 25-year-old left Juventus in 2016 to re-join the Spanish football giants Real Madrid before joining the London-club Chelsea in 2017.

“I live in downtown Chelsea. London fascinates me with its multi-ethnicity, the coexistence of cultures and religions, but I do not see myself living here for very long. Too much, too much stress, too many metropolises,” the Spaniard was quoted saying by Sky Sports.

“Italy for a Spaniard is the best country to live,” he said. “You have everything: beauty, history, art, cooking, fashion. I would never have left Italy and Juventus. 

“The disappointment (of leaving Juventus) was enormous, I found myself back to the starting point. They (Real Madrid) treated me like the guy I was before the two Italian seasons,” Morata added.

The Spanish international also confessed he joined Chelsea because of coach Antonio Conte.

“I came here because there was a coach like Antonio Conte, we started talking about my eventual transfer last spring and finally I really landed in London,” Morata said.
