Torres has a message for Jose Mourinho.

Fernando Torres is featured heavily today in the media after an interview was published in France. In that interview he re-iterates his desire to work hard to prove to Jose Mourinho that he could be the main man once again.

Everyone has their opinion on Torres. I have backed Torres to the hilt for the most part of his time at Chelsea but there was a turning point during the course of last season. You have to put personal feelings to one side and look at the facts and Torres goal return and it's just not good enough.

I personally feel now looking back that Fernando Torres has never been suited to the way Chelsea play and has had to adapt his style which has seen a demise in form and goal return. Think about it, at Liverpool Torres was the focal point of everything going forward. He knew that he was the first option everyone would look for with the ball at their feet and he thrived on that. You could even argue it's has been the same with Luis Suarez ever since he signed.

At Chelsea, we play without a focal point, almost free and expect players to combine in different areas to create and craft chances. Let's face it, if you are a striker here playing through the middle, you are not going to expect to be the main man everyone looks for when they first pick the ball up. It's a totally different situation to that of Liverpool.

So to Torres and the extensive interview he has given. He talks about his troubles at Chelsea to this point and to the comments made about our strikers this season and said;

"Before my arrival, Chelsea played with [Nicolas] Anelka and [Didier] Drogba in attack. I arrived to play alongside Anelka in a system with three midfielders. We played only one match with that system.

At the time, David Luiz and myself went to see [manager Carlo] Ancelotti together because we had been the last arrivals, we were told we would be important, but, in reality, we weren't playing. They finished by saying to us: 'We are going to finish the season with the team that started it.'

I understood nothing of what had happened. I started to get to know the bench. I reassured myself by saying things would soon change. [Andre] Villas-Boas arrived, then [Roberto] Di Matteo, but it was always the same: one day I played, the next not.

When you play, you do not ask yourself how it feels to be on the bench. You have to live it to understand how difficult it is to be there without being there. To enter a match knowing you do not have the confidence of the coach. To play when you simply don't have the habit of playing.

I felt bizarre, I had the feeling of getting tired quicker, of being heavier. I had no gas. You have to fight against a lot of things to get off the bench, sometimes even against yourself."

Today, I am a different player but I am not going to lie to you: the player that I was, the one who started all the matches with a guaranteed place, I really miss sometimes,"

At one point, I even sat myself down to watch videos of my goals: I wanted to understand what I was doing before when I was scoring.

I concluded that the only thing that had changed was the colour of the shirt. Everything is a question of adaptation to the playing style of a team. There are the styles which suit me well and others less, that is all.

Clearly [Mourinho's] aim is to sign another attacker for next season, but I am going to continue to work to make him change his opinion.

"There is not a lot to analyse. It is not possible to read it another way: he is not completely satisfied with our performances and that is all. All that is left for us to do is to prove that we can be the striker he is looking for."

You can understand his frustrations and would be lying if you thought otherwise coming from Liverpool, playing week in, week out to coming here to play as a backup striker and spending more time than ever before on the bench.

It has continued in his time here apart from under Rafa Benitez and we could all see the difference in Torres that season.

There is a saying in football that I have often quoted here and that is "Form is temporary, Class is permanent" and I still believe that Fernando Torres could be the 20-30 goal striker we are looking for. I do insist that Chelsea's style doesn't or hasn't suited Torres ever since he has been here but I commend him for talking of his desire to prove the manager and his doubters wrong.

The problem is that we have heard all this before so I really hope that first and foremost he stays and secondly, he does exactly what he says he wants to do and scores plenty of goals next season.
