Chelsea’s striker Fernando Torres has declared himself hugely frustrated at the end of a very tough season for him. After coming into the Champions League final off the bench, Torres declared that he’s ready to move on if the club can’t guarantee him a first team spot.
The striker for whom Chelsea paid a whooping £50 million is ready to leave according to his statement, and only a guaranteed first team spot can persuade him to stay.
“I’m not happy.” Torres said. “Before the game I felt it was going to be one of my best moments and I came with great desire and ambition.
“But then I had to start on the bench. I felt huge disappointment when I saw the starting line up, maybe the biggest disappointment of my life.
“I wanted to take a penalty but they didn’t let me.
“We have had many conversations and now the season is finished we will have more talks to see what happens in the future because this is not the role for which I came.
“I have been through the worst moments of my career during the season and I am not willing to relive those moments.
“There have been many ups and downs and many moments where I felt lost and I didn’t know what to do and where to be.
“The ideal for me for next season is if someone tells me what’s going to happen. What role will I have in the team, what function what is expected of me and to evaluate if it is worth it.”
Chelsea’s move for Torres would certainly prove the worst all time transfer the club made if the Spaniard will choose to leave the club in the summer, but it’s highly unlikely for that to happen given the fact that he’s still under contract with The Blues, and Ivorian star Didier Drogba is likely to leave the club.
