Alvaro Morata's x-rated outburst in the tunnel after Chelsea won FA Cup final

It's been a tough old debut season for Alvaro Morata at Chelsea.

Signed last summer from Real Madrid for £58 million, it was expected the Spaniard would thrive in the Premier League due to his size and skill set.

But that hasn't really been the case. In 31 Premier League appearances - 24 of which starts - Morata has scored just 11 goals.

It's certainly been a learning curve for the 25-year-old, who said earlier this month that he's gradually adapting to English football and how the referees in particular operate.

"I now know what the Premier League is like and what the referees are like," he told Marca. "I'm starting to befriend them now in the final stretch of the season.

"It's the only way for them to call more fouls for you. In the first half of the season it was a crazy thing. I protested a lot.

"One of them even told me that he knew it was a foul, but that he wasn't going to call it for me. This is the style of the Premier League and the likeable one ends up being chosen."


Morata's debut season at Chelsea did at least end on a high on Saturday as the Blues beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final.

Antonio Conte opted to start Olivier Giroud over the Spain international but brought him on in the 89th minute to play a small role.

And even though he will have been disappointed to not play more minutes at Wembley, clearly winning the FA Cup meant a lot to Morata.

Tunnel cam footage of the game has emerged on YouTube and at 10:30, as Morata walks back to the dressing room after the game, he screams six words in an x-rated outburst.

As translated by the Mirror, he shouts in Spanish: "Come on! Let them suck c****." Check it out.

Probably should have been edited out, but that's passion. Chelsea fans remain divided over Morata but it would seem a reported return to Juventus is now out of the question.

According to Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta, Juventus re-signing Morata is "practically impossible" at this stage.

"Morata always expressed sincere appreciation for Juventus and the city of Turin, but it was a very expensive transfer, so it's practically impossible to get him back," he said.
