Morata urges fans to be patient with Madrid

The Blancos striker admits that the team are not playing at their best but is confident they will improve their performances in time

Alvaro Morata has called for supporters to have patience with Real Madrid after they came from behind to win 3-2 away against Levante.

Nabil El Zhar’s 86th-minute strike looked set to give los Granotes a shock win after Sergio Ramos had cancelled out Baba Diawara’s opener.

However, Morata struck in the 90th minute to bring the scores level before Cristiano Ronaldo’s deflected effort completed a late turnaround four minutes into stoppage time, and the young Spaniard has urged Madridistas to be patient with the team’s form after another laboured performance.

“We need a touch of patience,” the 20-year-old forward told reporters after the game.

“I’m sure we will gradually start playing better. I am very happy – it was a match that we did not start well, but we’ve got through it and we were able to achieve victory.

“At Madrid, from a young age they teach you to fight to the end.”

Los Blancos remain in third in La Liga on 19 points, five behind leaders Barcelona.
