There has been some reports on the Daily Mirror website which have claimed Chelsea’s incoming boss Jose Mourinho is to get rid of a few key men, as they are seemingly not part of his plans.
Among those Mourinho believes are surplus to requirements are David Luiz – earmarked by Abramovich and the hierarchy as the new leader and symbol of the team – and Fernando Torres.
Torres scored just eight Premier League goals last season, Arsenal and Everton were the only top seven sides he found the net against and a number of senior players feel he has never been the he was in his pomp at Liverpool.
Yet it is also the case that he scored 21 competitive goals last season, including the opener in the Europa League Final. And that he was Abramovic’s £50million pet project. (Daily Mirror)
Although fans cannot wait to see the end of Torres, Luiz is a great player and should be part of the future at the club, But Mourinho knows what he likes and dis-likes and not many will question his judgement.
