Fernando Torres has said that he is still adapting to the way Chelsea play, as he aims to return to his best form. The Spaniard was signed from Liverpool for a whopping transfer fee of £ 50 million, but he has been a major disappointment at the club. He has managed just a handful of goals in almost 100 appearances for the club, but this season has been promising for the striker. He has managed to find the back of the net on 19 occasions in all competitions, but he has also been especially good in European competitions.
Torres has said that the arrival of several new players like Eden Hazard and Oscar has changed the way Chelsea have played. Hence, he has been added into the new style of play, which has not been easy, but he has hope that the next season will turn out much more positive. Torres has been starting almost every match for Chelsea this season in the absence of competition. Only after the arrival of Demba Ba for Newcastle United in the January transfer window has he been given competition for the starting places.
The 29-year-old, though, has said that he would welcome even more competition in the form of new strikers, which the club are hoping to sign in the summer. “This season has been better but not at the level I want to be. Not a better player. It’s different. We have a different team, a different style, very quick. It’s not been an easy season for anyone. New players come and they have been important players for the team. We are adapting to them. I think Chelsea has a top team and we always have the ball,” said Torres ahead of the match with FC Basel in Europa league on Thursday night.
