Conte admits frustration over Morata's ongoing back injury

The Spain global is sidelined with a back injury, with head coach Antonio Conte unsure when to expect the forward to return.

And Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was far from reassuring when addressing Morata's status on Friday.

However, they might just change their opinion of the 25-year-old following his comments about returning to Real Madrid on Spanish show Espacio Reservado.

He hasn't featured for the side since January 13th after suffering a back injury.

Conte did hint that Olivier Giroud could start against West Brom on Monday night.

Conte did not wish to explain why the club sent Michy Batshuayi on loan to Dortmund amid deepening concerns about Morata's injury.

Conte admits frustration over Morata's ongoing back injury

"I don't know how long he will be out for".

"We are struggling to find a solution to solve the pain in his back".

You ask me how long he is out, maybe he needs one day, one month, or is out for the season, I don't know. "I am a bit anxious as we know the importance of the player". "You very well the importance of the player".

He scored 12 goals in all competitions, including 10 goals in the Premier League for the English champions. After playing the Catalan giants in the last-16 of the Champions League, Chelsea will play Manchester United and Manchester City and clash with Barca in the 2nd leg of the round of 16 tie. "I would have liked Morata to stay but he wanted to play more first-team football elsewhere". He won two league titles and two Coppa Italia with the Turin club before returning to Santiago Bernabeu in 2016. But Conte insisted he is very much a Chelsea manager and is working hard to get his players back in the groove.

"I'm not thinking for one moment about the possibility to go away from this club", he said. I repeat: my commitment is totally for this club, like that of my players'. However, now with rumors about the Spaniard being out for the rest of the season have been confirmed by Antonio Conte and it looks like Morata's luck has gone from bad to worse. In this case, we are having poor results.
