Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has said that he is extremely happy to be the main striker at the club. The 28-year-old will now lead the line after he is the most experienced striker at the club. This is due to the departure of the 34-year-old Didier Drogba, who helped Chelsea win the champions league title with his last ever kick for the club. The former Marseille striker spent eight years at the club since his £ 24 million arrival from the French club in 2004. He is regarded as one of the best players in the history of the club after he has won every major trophy possible.
Now, it is the time of Fernando Torres to continue his legacy. The Spaniard has struggled for goals and has been in the shadow of the big Ivorian since arriving for a record £ 50 million from Liverpool in January 2011. However, it is thought that the departure of Didier Drogba could actually bring out the best in the Spaniard, who showed flashes of his best form at the Euro 2012 with Spain. Not only did he manage to win the Euro 2012, but he also on the Golden Boot award after having scored three goals.
“We are excited about this possibility. We are sure some of them will come, some others will be impossible. It’s very nice to be back and involved with the training again. It was an amazing season for me last time. It couldn’t have been better — I won the Champions League, European Championships for a second time in a row with Spain and the Golden Boot. It was amazing. I’ve had a good break and good time to rest with the family. I am ready to start the new season and I sure it will be a very nice one as well,” said Torres.
