Alvaro Morata received a lot of criticism for his lack of goals in the second half of the 2017-2018 season.

The Spaniard recently revealed that he would left the club if Conte remained with the Blues, after a reported fall-out with the Italian.

When asked if he was pleased with Sarri's style, the striker told Caden SER, "Yes, yes, yes. For me, yes. It's not for nothing, but for the style of play. It wasn't my style of play and I suffered a little because of that."

Morata scored six goals in his first six Premier League games last season, but he only ended up with 11 by the end of the campaign.

"In today's world, it's normal that these [critical] things are said," he added.

"Chelsea made a huge effort for me and it wasn't returned. I should have repaid them double. A player they pay for can't finish the season with 15 goals.

"People think we're machines. If I had stopped for three months, I would have come back with a clear head, but I was professional and I wanted to give everything.

"If I could go back, I would stop for two months. I was in pain, I went to Germany to see the doctor, paying for private planes. People believe the false life of Instagram, what it shows you; they thought I was at home with my wife. Some day I'll write a book about what I've been through."
