Fernando Torres is still the striker he used to be, claims Chelsea team-mate Salomon Kalou
Salomon Kalou has given Chelsea strike partner Fernando Torres a ringing endorsement, insisting the Spaniard’s best is yet to come.
And Torres’ management company also declared the £50 million man was finally being treated in the way he “deserves” at Stamford Bridge.
Bahia Internacional’s Antonio Sanz echoed the sentiments of Kalou, who this week claimed his own resurgence was down to the faith placed in him by caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo.
Kalou had no doubt Torres, who laid on his winner in Tuesday’s Champions League victory at Benfica, would ultimately prove a huge success at Chelsea.
“I’m glad he’s playing, he’s enjoying,” Kalou said.
“For me, he’s still the striker he used to be and he just has to keep doing the hard work and the best is to come.”
