Fernando Torres, Chelsea's record signing, made probably his last ever contribution to the club, with almost certainly the worst miss in the club's history.

Diego Costa and Kurt Zouma both scored their first Chelsea goals yesterday, but sadly frustrated striker Fernando Torres couldn't, even when given an open goal 2 yards away from him.

It's bizarre to think of Torres as a miss-machine: not too long ago he was arguably the best striker on the planet. During his time at Liverpool he even finished third in the World Player of the Year rankings. However, since his record breaking £50m transfer to Chelsea, Torres has, let's say, not been so successful.


He has since become renowned for his misses, notable ones including those against Manchester United and Sunderland. But in this friendly match against NK Ljubjana, Torres pulled off not only one of his worst misses, but one of the worst in history. After some lovely team play, the ball was crossed to Torres, 1 yard away from a completely empty goal, at chest height. Yet Fernando defied physics, the ball somehow bouncing off his chest and into row Z.

Many Chelsea fans will not be sad to see Torres leaving, especially having watched the video.
