Who would have thought… Talking to Chelsea’s official magazine, Alvaro Morata was asked how come he became that good in the aerial game (several of his goals have come from headers), and he gave a rather rational – and definitely surprising – explanation.
When I was seven or eight, I got a trampoline. My dad used to say to me all the time, ‘come on with the head’ and then pass the ball to me as I jumped. I really think it’s helped my heading game because I practiced this all the time with my dad
the Blues striker said, revealing the… secret behind his great record scoring goals with his head.
I found it funny when I was little to jump high and head or kick the ball, but it helped me for the future as well because the aerial game is one of my good points
the Spain international also said. Morata had another interesting revelation, talking about a little something he asked Chelsea to provide him with, after signing at Stamford Bridge.
I asked for a tape with goals Didier Drogba had scored for Chelsea. I put it on at home so I improve with Didier
the former Real Madrid and Juventus striker said. Last, talking about the back-to-back games in England, he actually seemed to be… enjoying the heavy schedule.
I really enjoy playing a lot of games because I always want to score more and play more. In the Premier League we have to play a lot
Morata’s comment was.
