Torres to consider Chelsea future

Published Add your comment

Chelsea forward Fernando Torres is considering his future at the Blues after missing out on a Champions League final starting place.

In the aftermath of the match, the Stamford Bridge striker criticised the way he has been treated this season, and admitted that finding himself on the bench in Munich was one of the most disappointing moments of his career.

The Spanish international has endured a difficult time with the Blues since his £50m switch from Liverpool, and has netted just six league goals this campaign.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper AS, Torres said: "I have been through the worst moments of my career during the season. I felt they have treated me in a way I was not expecting."

The former Atletico Madrid striker was forced to watch from the sidelines as Didier Drogba was once again preferred by Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo. The interim manager's selection was ultimately vindicated as the Ivorian turned in a match-winning performance, bagging a late equaliser before scoring the trophy-clinching spot kick.

Chelsea are set to open contract talks with Drogba, who is out of contract this summer, but Torres also wants clarification over his role at the club.

"We'll talk about my future at the end of the season because the role I've had this season is not for me, nor is it the one I expected to play when I came here," said Torres.

"I'm not comfortable. A victory like this one against Munich does compensate, but I want them to tell me what is going to happen in the future."

The Spain striker came off the bench in the 84th minute, replacing Salomon Kalou, as Chelsea went on to defeat Bayern Munich on penalties. There has been some good news for the Blues frontman though, as Torres, along with teammate Juan Mata, was named in Spain's squad to face Serbia and South Korea in the country's Euro 2012 friendly preparations.
