Chelsea news – Torres relief, Redknapp keen on Drogba, Ancelotti: Title still on

Torres relief.

Fernando Torres expressed his relief after finally breaking his Chelsea duck against West Ham at Stamford Bridge.

It took 14 outings for the £50m man to end his drought and the Spaniard says he can finally now start to enjoy playing for his new club.

“It was not beginning I was expecting when I signed, but it’s never easy when you arrive in January at a massive team like this,” the delighted striker said. “There’s less pressure for me now, now I can enjoy it.”

Ancelotti: Title still on.

Following the defeat of West Ham Carlo Ancelotti says his team are capable of defending their title. The holders still have to play Man Utd, who still have to also play Arsenal, so the Italian is not giving up hope of retaining their crown.

“We have less possibility,” he said regarding the injury sustained by Michael Essien, but continued. “There are just four games, the gap is the same, so it will be more difficult. But we have to keep trying to believe that we can do something.”

Redknapp keen on Drogba.

Harry Redknapp says he would definitely be interested in signing Chelsea’s Didier Drogba if the chance came along this summer, according to the Telegraph.

When asked if he would be interested in the Ivorian, should he be put up for sale, the Tottenham manager said it is difficult to talk about.

“It’s difficult to say, couldn’t really say that, could I? He’s a fantastic centre-forward – power, strength, he’s got everything.” Redknapp said.

“He plays for Chelsea and until they decide otherwise, you can’t speculate about his future. But he’s a good player. It’s up to them what they do.”
