Fernando Torres looking to return as Goal Maker
AC Milan striker Fernando Torres accepts that his goal return will probably be the only factor he will be judged upon.
The Spaniard has lost his golden touch in front of goal since making the move to Chelsea.
It was highly anticipated that leaving Chelsea for Milan would help him rediscover his form. The 30-year-old joined the Italian club on a loan deal for the next two years, which effectively seals an end to his Chelsea career. After starting his Milan career with a goal against Empoli back in September, Torres has gone an astonishing eight matches without a goal.
His latest blank came in the 1-1 draw with Inter Milan. After having grown tired of the striker failing to score, Milan manager Filippo Inzaghi substituted the 30-year-old after 73 minutes. He has completed the full 90 minutes only once in his Milan career. Torres looks like a lost figure even in this Milan team, but some have been backing the striker to rediscover his form. Torres has also been praised for his work rate, but the Spaniard accepts that goals will be the important thing for critics. Torres has won numerous titles in his career including the Champions League and the World Cup, but he is going through the most difficult spell of his career.
“You may have won many titles in your career and played in many important matches, but when you join a side with a different style, you have to adapt first and then make the rest of the team understand your style so you can finally shine by scoring goals.As I said, in the end the goals are what count. A striker is not judged by his passes or whether he fought hard. What counts is the number of goals,” said the Milan striker ahead of the derby.
