Spanish forward Fernando Torres won the FA Cup and Champions League with Chelsea last season and is eyeing more trophies with the Stamford Bridge club as he insists he’d like to stay, but with 19 goals in 90 games, I doubt most will want him to.
Torres told FIFA.com:
“One of the main reasons to come to Chelsea was that they are always aiming for trophies. I needed to win trophies because they are what you have after you have finished.
“In my first full season, we won the FA Cup and Champions League. What more can you ask? We have a chance now to win the FIFA Club World Cup.
“I have four more years on my contract so hopefully I can win many more things – the Premier League would be amazing. The Capital One Cup and the Community Shield also.”
He also says he’s happy with his role in the team:
“I’m very happy about that because it’s the role I like. Hopefully, it can be like this until the end of the season.”
He doesn’t look happy to me, especially during our recent matches and it would seem as though the extremely patience the Chelsea faithful has shown in him is wearing thinner by the day. He’s had everything given to him to try and revive his fortunes in front of goal, Didier Drogba was moved on, he’s guaranteed of a starting role, we spent a fortune on players to supply him with ammunition and even went as far as bringing in Rafa Benitez (most unpopular appointment ever?) to try get the best out of him.
We’ve been waiting two years for this man to show something and although he’s scored more than usual, it’s simply not good enough and I cannot imagine it ever working out at Chelsea. I was surprised that we didn’t sign more firepower during the summer but I’ll be astounded if we didn’t bring in a forward during the January transfer window.
