Torres committed to Chelsea

Fernando Torres concedes he has not been good enough since his move to Stamford Bridge, but insists he is fully committed to Chelsea.

The Spanish striker has scored only five goals since joining Chelsea from Liverpool over a year ago in a record-breaking £50 million transfer.

Torres' dreadful form means he is far from a guaranteed starter under Andre Villas-Boas, and he has often been linked with a move away from west London.

It was reported by the Daily Star that Chelsea are considering a summer move for Atletico Madrid striker Falcao, and will propose a deal that would see Torres head in the opposite direction.

The 27-year-old's place at Euro 2012 with Spain is also under threat, unless he begins to hit the net, and Vicente del Bosque has warned Torres that previous achievements at international level will not be taken into account.

Torres, for his part, certainly thought he would have enjoyed a far more fruitful first 12 months with Chelsea, and is determined to transform his fortunes sooner rather than later.

"To be honest, after one year I was expecting things would be better than they are now," Torres told ESPN.

"It is a difficult situation because I am happy in my personal life. We really like the club and we're very happy here to be involved with the staff and the players.

"On the pitch, it is a difficult time for Chelsea because we are not finding the results, but we're changing things like playing a different style and still we have a young team to do it.

"Personally, I have to improve. In my time at Liverpool there were games where I would not be playing well or I would be doing nothing but every time I touched the ball, I scored.

"It's such a strange feeling now because I am feeling better than ever physically. I am not finding the chances and when I do find the chances, I cannot score

"My present and my future are here. I have many things to do here and I want to do it because I always did what I wanted in every club I've been at, so this is not going to be different."
