Torres explains reason behind lack of goals


Fernando Torres has admitted the reason behind his lack of goals in recent seasons’.

The striker, now aged 30, is currently on loan at Italian side AC Milan, having been told he is surplus to requirements by parent club Chelsea.

His two year loan deal from the Blues at Milan will take him to the end of his Chelsea contract, which expires in the summer of 2016.

Torres signed for Chelsea in a £50 million transfer fee from Liverpool in the January of 2011, and endured a frustrating time in West London, netting just 20 times for the Blues, and enduring a severe goal drought in the process.

It was a stark contrast to his spell at Liverpool, where he scored 65 goals during his spell at Anfield, 24 of which, came in the 2007-2008 season.

Following his move to Milan, he has scored just once in 11 games for his new club, and has recently stated why he has failed to find the net consistently.

“My goal is still to be top scorer. Milan brought me here to score and take advantage of chances, it’s my job.

“If I don’t do that I belong somewhere else.

“Having said that, scoring a goal isn’t an obsession. If I see a teammate in a better position I will pass it to them.

“Here at Milan we have to restart, but I know from experience you can’t rush these things.

“Getting back into Europe is the main goal of course, but we mustn’t become too anxious about it.”
