Spanish striker Fernando Torres has characterized his Chelsea teammates as “old and slow”.
The Spain international has scored just one goal since making a £50 million move from Liverpool and he believes his teammates are partly to blame for his poor form.
“When I changed clubs, I knew it was going to be a slow process, although I didn’t expect it to be so long,” Torres was quoted as saying in The Sun.
“Chelsea is, between the English teams, maybe the least English.
“That’s because of the kind of player Chelsea has — an older player, who plays very slow, who has a lot of possession — and that’s what the club is trying to change now.”
Torres than praised the signing of Juan Manuel Mata.
“It’s not easy to find midfielders because the best ones are already in the best teams. But the arrival of Mata is going to give another pace to the team.”
