Morata admits scoring Juventus winner puts him in a 'difficult situation' with Real Madrid fans

Juventus fans

The 22-year-old Spaniard is the toast of Turin, rather than Madrid, after shattering the Champions League dreams of his former side.

Amidst the jubilant celebrations of the Juventus players, after the final whistle, match and tie-winner Alvaro Morata spoke with Italian broadcaster, Sport Mediaset, offering his initial reactions to overcoming Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, to secure the Italians a place in Champions League final in Berlin.

"I'm very happy we've reached to final." He enthused, before quickly showing his appreciation for the travelling Juventus fans, adding: "I want to thank the fans who were here.

As for the chances of beating favourites Barcelona in the final, Morata also made a promise to supporters: "I would say to them: we'll do everything we can to win the final. It's not going to be easy, but with hard work, we can do it."

Undoubtedly the key talking point, for both sets of fans, will be the 57th minute goal scored by Morata, which booked his side their final date with Barcelona in Berlin.

Questioned about how he feels, having not only scored against his former club, but also knocking them out of the Champions League, Morata admitted: "I think it's a difficult situation. I haven't really done anything, I haven't insulted anyone. I just did my job, so I dedicate the goal to my family, my daughter, my friends and my agent."

Last year Morata was celebrating Champions League triumph with Real Madrid, after they beat Atletico Madrid in Oporto. This time, he'll be stepping out in Berlin for Juventus, hoping to achieve a second consecutive winners medal, with victory against Barcelona.
