Chelsea striker Morata furious with Barcelona benching; rethinking London move

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is furious being benched for their draw with Champions League opponents Barcelona.

The Spaniard had to settle for a place on the bench and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte left it until the 82nd minute to bring him on.

And the latest reports from Spain suggest Morata was seriously unimpressed by Conte's decision.

Mi Otra Liga reports Morata was unhappy while warming up during the game.

And he is said to have been 'really angry' post-match, so much so that he dodged interviews.

Morata was apparently desperate to feature more prominently against Barcelona due to his Real Madrid connections.

Now he is beginning to regret swapping La Liga for the Premier League last summer.
