‘Flop’ Torres tops Mourinho’s ‘five-strong list’ of players to be dropped from Chelsea

London, Apr. 04: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will reportedly get rid of under-fire flop Fernando Torres, who tops a five-strong list of stars that the club manager will sell this summer.

The Portuguese coach reportedly lashed out at his misfiring striker following this week’s 3-1 Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-German, a third in a row after 1-0 losses at Aston Villa and Crystal Palace.

However, Mourinho is not the only one criticizing his misfiring Torres, who cost Chelsea 50 million-pounds from Liverpool, as former Liverpool star Danny Murphy said that Torres will never be back to the player he was at Anfield, the Daily Star reports.

Murphy said that Torres’ confidence has just dropped and it has gotten worse and worse adding that the striker had never been technically that brilliant although he has got pace and power.

Murphy also said that people at Chelsea were thinking that Torres is scoring goals for Spain, so they will get the real Torres back, but the striker does not like he has got it in him.

Besides Torres, other footballers who are on their way out of Chelsea include England star Ashley Cole, striker Romelu Lukaku, Brazil international David Luiz and holding midfielder John Obi Mikel, the report added. (ANI)
