On Tuesday, Alvaro Morata’s last-gasp winner sent Juventus into the Champions League last 16, as the Spaniard set a personal record.
As Alvaro Morata tied his highest goals count in a Champions League campaign the Juve player claims he is a more complete player since his return to Juventus.
In 2014-15 the forward netted five goals, his highest haul in the competition, as Juve reached the Champions League final, where Barcelona defeated them.
Morata, who also hit the post after coming on as a substitute in Turin after matching the record with only four games gone, said he had been a much better all-round forward.
“Nothing changed in me, I said many times, you learn throughout your career. I am a more complete player now,” the former Atletico Madrid, Chelsea and Real Madrid man told Sky Italia.
“When I was 22, I paid attention only when the ball came near me, but now I remain more focused and every ball can be decisive.”
“I had another chance today that hit the upright. I was fortunate on the goal, unlucky on the earlier chance, so it all balances out.”
