Morata Reveals The Career Advice Mourinho Once Gave Him

Chelsea star Alvaro Morata has revealed a conversation he once had with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho following a poor training session during their time together at Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old, who was heavily linked with the Red Devils at the start of the season, left Los Blancos at the start of the current campaign and moved to Stamford Bridge for a reported fee of £60 million (R991 million).

Morata, who made his Real Madrid debut under Mourinho, admitted that he had only good things to say about the former Blues boss and was thankful that Portuguese tactician gave him some important advice which put his career on the right path.

“Mourinho treated us very well and cared for us, using a carrot and stick," Morata said, as quoted by the Daily Express.

"He gave me my first big contract at Madrid.

“He called me after a bad training session and said to me that if you start well (in your career) then you will never have to work again in your life… but right now you have to decide where you want to go, so work well."
