Whittaker: "When A Reputable Team Expresses Interest, It's Essential To View It Positively And Demonstrate The Progress You've Made."

Morgan Whittaker has expressed his unequivocal commitment to Plymouth Argyle, describing it as an obvious decision to remain and continue progressing, especially after the rejection of an offer from Italian club Lazio last week for the talented 23-year-old forward. Whittaker, who scored the winning goal against Swansea City, has demonstrated his contentment at Home Park through his on-field performances, bringing his total for the season to 17 goals in all competitions.

While a move to Lazio would have provided Whittaker with the opportunity to play in Serie A against top clubs like AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Napoli, and Roma, as well as in the UEFA Champions League last 16 against Bayern Munich this month, Argyle consistently asserted that he was not available for transfer throughout the winter transfer window. Despite interest from Premier League clubs like Brentford, Fulham, and West Ham United, Argyle's stance remained unchanged when Lazio made their bid, a decision that Whittaker fully endorsed.

Reflecting on the situation, Whittaker shared his perspective on handling the attention from prestigious clubs, emphasizing the need to use it as motivation and to play with confidence without letting it become a source of stress.

"You simply need to see that these teams are interested in you, it's incredible, so utilize that to continue playing with confidence and don't let it bother you," Whittaker said to BBC Radio Devon following the Swansea game.

"Certainly, it can be overwhelming when your name is making headlines. However, when a reputable team expresses interest, it's essential to view it positively and demonstrate the progress you've made."

Grateful for the support from the Green Army, Whittaker acknowledged their role in attracting interest from clubs like Lazio and expressed his deep connection with both the fans and the club. He remains committed to maintaining his current form and contributing to Plymouth Argyle's success.

"I share the same sentiments they have for both them and the club. I believe that without their support, I wouldn't be attracting interest from Lazio and other teams, so I owe them a great deal. I hope to maintain the current form I'm in." Said Whittaker.
