The Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has said that it would be extremely huge to win the Club World Cup championship with Chelsea. Chelsea are currently in Japan to take part in the Club World Cup championship that involves the Champions League winners from the six continents across the world. Chelsea are undoubtedly the favourites to win the competition after this trophy has been handed to European club in the last five seasons without exception. Even though teams from Brazil and North America have been successful in the past, Chelsea are undoubtedly the favourites to win the title this time around as well.
They come into the tournament on the back of the good run of form in recent matches, which has also helped them bring an end to the eight match winless run in the Premier league. Fernando Torres has also found the back of the net in the league after a gap of more than two months. He has scored four goals in the last two matches and he is on a good run of form. Torres managed to win the Champions League and the FA cup in his first full season with Chelsea. Now, he is looking at the opportunity to lift the Club World Cup as well.
“In Europe maybe we don’t give it as much attention, and to some people it might not mean much, but to me it does, so this is not a holiday or a break, this is a World Cup. It’s nice to be involved, and maybe to be able to say you are a world champion. The European Super Cup was just as important to us and we lost, so we don’t want that disappointment. It wouldn’t make up for the Champions League, they are different things,” said Torres ahead of the tournament.
