Former Chelsea goalkeeper and current assistant coach Carlo Cudicini believes that Chelsea forward Morata can play football with a clean mindset after netting against Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup.
The Spaniard netted twice in the second interval to end his goal draught which lingered for two months at Chelsea.
Morata’s woes in front of goal has led to a wide speculation that Chelsea will go for a striker in the current transfer window.
However, Cudicini has revealed that Chelsea still places faith in Morata, as the London club believes he can start scoring on a regular basis once he rediscover his confidence.
“I think Alvaro played an important part in today’s performance, he was very good in terms of working for the team, offensively but mainly defensively,” Cudicini told reporters.
“It was very important for him to score two goals which can only be good for his confidence. We are all pleased with his performance but we were even when he didn’t score in previous games so hopefully it will be good for his morale that he scored, and hopefully he will be freer in his mind.
“For a striker it’s difficult when you go through a spell when you don’t score many goals, so his body language was a bit down, but in training he’s working very hard.
“We all knew that sooner or later he would be able to turn the corner and start scoring goals. Thankfully he did it today.”
