Jose Mourinho insists Fernando Torres has a future at Chelsea but the Blues boss wants more from the much-maligned striker.
Torres, a British record £50m purchase from Liverpool in January 2011, was overlooked for a striker-less starting side for Wednesday’s loss at PSG as Mourinho appeared to lose patience with the Spaniard.
The 30-year-old, who signed a five-and-a-half-year deal on his deadline day arrival from Anfield, has scored 44 goals in 164 appearances for the Blues, including nine in 33 games this term.
“Does he have a future? Yes, he has,” said Mourinho.
“He is under contract, he’s a good professional. He works hard for the team, he brings positive things to the team.
