Alvaro Morata Opens Up About the Abuse & threats he Gets Playing for Spain

Posted by

“I’m not doing my job well,” Morata admitted when speaking on Spanish radio station COPE last night. “I understand that I am criticised because I have not scored a goal, but I wish people would put themselves in the place of what it is like to receive threats, to be told that your children should die.

“Every time I get to the dressing room, my phone goes somewhere else. What bothers me is that they tell my wife, that they tell my children that they are going through Seville with their dad’s name on their shirts. They tell them everything.”

“I didn’t sleep for nine hours after the Poland game. I understand criticism for not scoring, I accept it. I wish people would put themselves in that position of your family receiving death threats.

“I’m very happy, but it bothers me not to do my job well. The fans whistled at me before warming up, but I’m happy to take the penalty (against Slovakia) and have missed it.”
