Alvaro Morata reveals his biggest observation about English football

Chelsea’s new striker Alvaro Morata has revealed his biggest observation about English football and how it differs from Spanish and Italian football.

Morata has previously played for Real Madrid and Juventus, and so is in a good place to tell the differences in all three top flight leagues.

He reveals what makes English football stand out among the lot is the intensity levels.

But it’s true that English football is different to Italy and Spain. You don’t have much time to calm down, or relax, because all the time the ball is on fire! You need to be in good condition to play here and approach every match with a good mentality.

In terms of the marking, it is probably the same here as in Italy with the teams that are maybe not at the top of the league – those teams are compact and it’s hard for us sometimes to break them down. But when the other team wants to play with the ball, you can find space. That’s when you find the spaces to attack the other team.
