Fernando Torres has not been able to replicate the form he enjoyed during his days at Liverpool, even though he played a major role in Chelsea's Europa League trophy success last season.
The Spaniard has been inconsistent with form at Chelsea, but produces outstanding results during international campaigns.
Whilst playing for his home country and with excellent playmakers who utilise his strengths, Torres became the highest goalscorer in both the 2012 European Championships and the recently concluded Confederations Cup.
Jose Mourinho, who is good at bringing out the best from a player, has publicly backed Torres and wants to help the forward regain his old magic by teaching his team-mates how to play his strengths.
"We know Torres's game," Mourinho is quoted by Sky Sports. "When we see Torres with his back to goal surrounded by two or three opponents, we know that he is not going to produce a piece of magic.
"But this is Torres. We want the team not to learn how to play with him, but to improve how to play with him.
"We won't re-model his game, it is impossible to re-model his game. But we want to adapt the team and teach the team how to use his best qualities, because his game is his game.
"He is not a kid anymore, he is at an age where it is difficult to change his play. He is what he is and he is very good with the qualities that he has got. So we need to learn and support his game.
"I feel he is highly motivated, he works very motivated, he works very hard. I think some of the work we do with the team in terms of attack suits his qualities. So lets see what happens. We are here to support him."
We hope to see the resurfacing of the true El-Niño in the new season, and Chelsea will be glad to see the £50million forward justify his worth by helping fire the west London club to the Premier League title in 2013/14.
