Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho has never lost faith in Fernando Torres, the Spanish player which cost the Premier League club €50 million failed to live up to the expectations that he could play at the same world class level he did some years ago when performing with Liverpool.
Even with his significant number of underwhelming matches and low amount of goals being scored in every season it seems like Mourinho truly believes that Fernando Torres still has a lot more to offer and the former Real Madrid manager continuously places the Spanish attacker in his starting lineup.
Chelsea has played a number of pre-season friendly matches against Vitesse, Werder Bremen, Olimpija and a few other clubs and the team of Jose Mourinho has collected positive results in all of the games except when locking horns with Werder Bremen where Fernando Torres missed the net from point blank range.
Jose Mourinho shut down claims and rumors linking Fernando Torres with a move away from Chelsea as the Portuguese manager went on saying that Torres will only leave if the player desires on doing so and this will not happen as Torres has already announced that he wants to repay Chelsea and the fans of the club for their support towards him.
If Fernando Torres does indeed remain in Stamford Bridge and no other high profile attacker is signed by Jose Mourinho then Torres and Diego Costa are expected to be lined up together as the main offensive players for Chelsea during the next Premier League season but if Torres does not perform at the level that is demanded by the club then it would be a wise decision for Mourinho to sign another player that can serve as a back-up option for the inconsistent Fernando Torres who has a lot to prove if he wants to silence his critics.
