Alvaro Morata sends apology to Chelsea FC fans ahead of Southampton clash
Alvaro Morata takes to social media to send an apology to Chelsea FC fans after the 2-1 win over Burnley
Alvaro Morata has taken to social media to apologise for his reaction to being substituted in Chelsea FC’s clash with Burnley on Thursday.
The Spanish striker started the game but was brought off by Antonio Conte in the 71st minute as the Blues sealed a 2-1 win over the Clarets to keep their hopes of finishing in the top four alive.
Morata was not at all pleased when he was substituted in the second half at Turf Moor, but the striker has since taken to social media to clear up why he reacted that way.
The 25-year-old posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Three important points for us.
“The best way to get ready for Sunday’s game was winning today. I want to apologize for my reaction when I was sent to the bench, when I fail I get really angry with myself!”
Morata, who signed from Real Madrid last summer, will be hoping to start for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to FA Cup action with their crunch semi-final clash against Southampton on Sunday at Wembley.
The Blues are aiming to go one step further than they did last season, when Conte’s men were beaten in the final by London rivals Arsenal.
Chelsea FC’s win over Burnley left the Blues in fifth place in the Premier League table and five points behind fourth-placed Spurs with four games left to play this season.
