Torres: I owe Chelsea

Fernando Torres has come a long way since May 19th, when having won just won the Champions League with Chelsea, Torres spoke of just how unhappy he was at the club following a season that saw him play mostly second fiddle to Didier Drogba, particularly in the big games.

However, the the Daily Mail suggests that now, with Drogba gone and Torres the clear first choice striker, the Spaniard is far happier with life with Stamford Bridge. “I had a conversation with Robbie (Di Matteo) and with the board and said what I felt about last season and what I wanted in the future. Five minutes after that everything was clarified. I’m here because I have an important part to play for this team, but I couldn’t say a bad word about Chelsea.They made a big effort effort to buy me and I have a lot of things still to do for this club. I want to win everything I haven’t won yet,” Torres said.

El Nino has started every game for the Blues this season, having taken the Golden Boot at Euro 2012 and with three goals already is well on course to better last season’s tally of 11 in 32 league appearances, 12 of which from the substitutes’ bench. Torres hinted at the difference Drogba’s departure to China had made, saying: “When you feel the confidence of everyone and you’re in the line-up, the confidence is easier to have back. You know you’re going to play, or think you are, and that gives you more time to play your football. I’d never been on the bench for eight games in a row as I was last season.” Torres spoke in Monaco ahead of Friday’s European Super Cup clash with Europa League winners Atletico Madrid, where he will come up against a reported Chelsea target in Radamel Falcao, scorer of 36 goals for Atletico last season.
