Conte: Morata needs more time

Antonio Conte tells that Alvaro Morata needs more time to adapt to the life in London

Conte brought in Morata for the blue part of London from the capital of Spain, and he reveals that the 24-year-old player needs more time to adapt to England.

“He is starting to understand what it is that I would like to see from him in the games. He needs more time. The role as a striker is an important role. That particular role needs more adapting time than other roles”, Conte says to Sky Sports.

Chelsea and Morata are playing their first Premier League game of the season later today, when Burnley comes to Stamford Bridge.
