TORRES CERTAIN ON FUTURE
The Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has said that he is finally feeling certain that Stamford Bridge after a difficult start to his Chelsea career. The Spaniard moved from Liverpool back in the January transfer window of 2010 for record transfer fee of £ 50 million.
However, he has been a major disappointment since his move because he has been able to score only a fraction of goals he scored at Liverpool. He was completely under the shadow of the striker Didier Drogba, who recently left the club in the summer. As a result, Torres has been the main striker at the club this season.
He has now said that he is feeling that he has finally settled at the club after making it difficult start to the life in West London. Torres managed to help Chelsea win the Champions League and the FA Cup double last season, but he has already stated that he does not have a lot of enjoyment from having lifted these two trophies because he did not contribute a lot to the team. The striker may not have scored goals at the same rate as he did at Liverpool, but he has already got seven goals this season.
“Football is a team sport and not an individual sport. If Chelsea win the Champions League, everyone is a better, more recognised player, but if you win an individual award and nothing with your team, it means nothing. You have to win with the team, and for the team. In your life you go through a difficult situation or a very good situation and you have different moods, but you learn things from your experiences,” said Torres ahead of the match with West Brom during the weekend. Chelsea are currently third in the Premier league after the slight dip in form recently.
