‘Torres can be goal king at Chelsea’
Drogba’s praise for Stamford Bridge hitman
DIDIER Drogba maintains next season will see the best of Fernando Torres at Chelsea as the Ivory Coast striker prepares for life after Stamford Bridge.
The 34-year-old is leaving the club whom he helped win the Champions League to bring the curtain down on a trophy-laden spell in west London.
Drogba – signed from Marseille for £24 million in 2004 – is now expected to join up with former Blues team-mate Nicolas Anelka at Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua in a lucrative free transfer.
Spain striker Torres may feel he has had to play second fiddle to Drogba since his £50m move from Liverpool 18 months ago, but the veteran is in no doubt who will be the new goal king of Stamford Bridge.
“It has been difficult for him, but he has showed he is the man. Next season is going to be his season,” said Drogba.
