Former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit claims Willian and Eden Hazard “don’t trust” team-mate Alvaro Morata.
Alvaro Morata has been bereft of confidence since the turn of the year, scoring six goals in his last 35 outings at club level.
Morata arrived at Stamford Bridge in a £58m move from Real Madrid 15 months ago
Gullit believes that the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian can do more to get the 25-year-old more involved in games, however, telling beIN SPORTS: “His teammates don’t come into any positions where they create anything for him.
“The worst part is you can see Willian and Hazard always dribble inside because they don’t trust him. But also when the crosses are in, I think there was a moment in the first half where you asked ‘where is Morata’, he wasn’t there. So they don’t trust him.”
Speaking about his form recently, Morata admitted he “could be happier” at Stamford Bridge.
He said: “Within football I would like to be happier and for that I have to score more goals, which is what makes me happy. But I am sure that little by little they will enter, because I am having occasions.”
