Di Matteo to persevere with Torres

Published Add your comment

Roberto Di Matteo insists he will stick by Chelsea's Fernando Torres for as long as it takes to end the £50million striker's goal famine.

Di Matteo, who was appointed interim coach at Stamford Bridge following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas last weekend, is determined to support Torres who has gone five months and 25 matches without finding the back of the net.

"I will persevere as long as it takes. Persevere, persevere. He's a team player. If he doesn't score and someone else does, that's fine by me," Di Matteo said.
