“It is a great day I will never forget, to welcome my twin sons into the world,” Morata told chelseafc.com

“My family is very important to me and I will love to honour them and my wife, Alice, when playing on the pitch is the reason why I have decided to take a different number for the new season and remember this special day by adding the number 2 (twin) to my shirt.

“I am sorry" he apologized to the fans who may have bought a jersey with the number 9 and my name on it, but I hope you understand my tribute and that it will not be a problem and we can make you a new one with the 29.

“Thanks to you all for your support and I hope this year will be a Bette one with a lot to celebrate.
