Does Roman Abramovich hand out a template for Chelsea managers to use when talking about Fernando Torres? #CFC #ESP
Rafael Benitez on Torres after the striker failed to score - for the 30th time this season - against Sparta Prague last night: “We have to create more opportunities, then he will score more goals. His work rate was very good and he is doing a great job for the team.”
Carlo Ancelotti, Andre Villas-Boas, Roberto Di Matteo, Benitez. All have had to make excuse after excuse for Torres. All have tried method after method to try and solve his problems. All have praised his work rate. All will have been dismissed by Abramovich before the Russian realises that Fernando Torres is the new Andriy Shevchenko.
