Euro 2020 .. Morata reveals: I received threats and insults after the Poland match

The Spanish national team and Juventus striker Alvaro Morata revealed that he and his family received threats and insults after the Matador national team match against Poland in Euro 2020, and said: "I went for nine hours without sleep."

"I'm not doing my job well, but I'm fine, maybe a few years ago I would have been much worse, maybe I didn't do my job as I should," Morata told Spanish radio station Cadena Coupe.

He added: I went for nine hours without sleep after the Poland game, I received threats and insults to the family saying we wish your children would die, I understand that you criticize me for not scoring goals, but people should put themselves in my place, and understand what it means to receive threats, and tell you that Your children must die, when some tragedies happen, they will say he was a good man!"

Morata indicated that he went to see the psychiatrist of the Spanish national team and that he put his phone away to prevent himself from the psychological harm he is exposed to.

He continued, "When I got to the hotel, I put my phone away, but the thing that bothers me is that they say these things to my wife and children on the playground," before explaining that the therapist made him feel better.

He continued: "It helps us a lot, it's great to have someone who listens to you whenever you need him, my teammates make fun of me for this, but fortunately I can talk about him."

The Atletico Madrid player loaned to Juventus scored one goal but made many mistakes in front of goal, including missing a penalty against Slovakia, as the 28-year-old played all three matches in the group stage and became a scapegoat for the poor results of the Spaniards despite qualifying for the last 16.

Spain drew with Sweden and Poland, before beating Slovakia 5-0 in the last match to advance to the last eight.
