Mata reveals Torres role in Chelsea move

Juan Mata has revealed the role that compatriot Fernando Torres had in bringing the player to Stamford Bridge.

“I did talk to him about this and he was the one who encouraged me to come,” Mata told the London Evening Standard. He said this would be an excellent experience for me to play as part of a bigger team and a team which has excellent facilities, an excellent manager and excellent qualities overall.”

Mata, 23, also praised Torres for his performance against Bayer Leverkusen, where the striker claimed two assists: “He did an excellent job. He did really well helping to set up two goals. He was excellent in the attack as well and I think he’s contributing a great deal to Chelsea as their striker.”
