Mourinho backs Torres ahead of Atletico Madrid clash

Chelsea Jose Mourinho has backed striker Fernando Torres to show his best form when he takes on former club Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, Sky Sports has reported.

The two sides meet at the Vicente Calderon in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final. Despite his disappointing form for Chelsea, Torres remains very highly regarded by Atletico, where he began his career and built his reputation before leaving for Liverpool in the summer of 2007.


With Samuel Eto’o set to miss out due to a knee injury, Torres could be handed a start, although Demba Ba appears to have forced his way above the Spaniard in the pecking order in recent weeks.


Although Mourinho has refused to reveal if Torres will start the match, he confirmed that he will play a part and used the opportunity to back the 30-year-old. He said: "The minutes he is on the pitch he is going to try everything for Chelsea, like the professional he is.


"I am not saying that Fernando Torres will start, I am saying that he never hides. We feel that every day. We talk about Spanish football and he's a big Atletico supporter, but he's a professional."
