Morata, 31, believes he does not get any respect and is jeered at during a friendly match against Brazil in March.

He has now given a controversial interview to Spanish outlet El Mundo.

He said: “It could be [my last tournament with Spain].

“It’s a possibility that I don’t want to talk about too much, but it’s probable.”

Morata went on to explain that he prefers playing outside of Spain as he insisted there is “no respect” in his homeland

He added: “In Spain it’s hard for me to be happy.

“Without doubt [I’m happier outside of Spain]. I’ve said it many times. Above all, because people respect me.

“In Spain there’s no respect for anything or anyone.”

The Atletico Madrid ace is likely to be in the team to face France in the Euro 2024 semi-final tomorrow evening.

This comes after incorrect reports suggested that he was suspended during the quarter-final win over Germany.


He said: “The other day, people said I was crying [on the touchline] because I’d been given a yellow card.

“What nonsense is that! I was crying because my country, with me as captain, had got into the semifinals. 

“I could never criticise someone who was crying because of that.

“But I’m criticised, when I’d cut my hand off to win the Euros.

“I try to enjoy this tournament, which could be my last games with the national team, and in the future, what will be, will be.

“Maybe one day they’ll even miss me.

“Each day, the moment for leaving is closer, that’s why I enjoy it, that’s why I’ll cry at whatever comes next, for good or bad.”

Morata has worn the armband for Spain during the tournament and has helped the team become the favourites to go all the way.

Spain topped Group B with three wins before beating Georgia 4-1 in the round of 16.
