AVB spoke after Chelsea had beaten their Malaysian counterparts last night and after being asked questions about getting the best out of Fernando Torres, the possibility of Torres and Drogba playing together and a lack of movement in the transfer market, he showed for the first time a frustration of the "obsessions" some people have at the moment with Chelsea.

He said of Torres:
"I don't want to turn Torres into an obsession like you people are trying to do. I am not going to waste time over this. I disagree that he is lacking in confidence.

Every time a player doesn't score, I am asked questions about him. I agree that Torres is a £50m striker but my focus is purely on the performance of the team, not the individual.

It doesn't matter who scores. These are pre-season games and they don't have the importance that some people think. Every Chelsea player is competing to be successful and the best players in training will go into the team.

The point of these games is to get a feel for your team and achieve your objectives in terms of fitness and training.

To gain the confidence to find the back of the net, Torres needs training, tolerance and patience. It doesn't look like he is getting this at the moment but we are ready to give our forwards this patience because the most important thing for us is to win collectively.

I will just let things happen naturally. In Chelsea every player finds extreme competitiveness to be successful and the best players performing in training will go into the games and hopefully help the team to be successful.

Then AVB commented on the Drogba / Torres future combination that people are calling for once again, even though we are in pre season!. He said:
"Again, the question of Fernando and Drogba not scoring together is an obsession for people at the moment. They will eventually perform for the team well enough for us to be successful. I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's a decision of the technical staff."

I really can't understand people jumping on the Torres bandwagon again already as we have only been back in training for just under three weeks.

I agree with AVB so I am going to stop there. I also refuse to turn this into a Torres obsession as I believe he will fly in a Chelsea shirt this season.
