Fernando Torres Worth £50 million Says Sir Alex Ferguson

Fernando Torres, Chelsea


Torres transferred to Chelsea from Liverpool in January in a £50 million deal. El Nino has yet to score in seven appearances for Chelsea – although he scored 65 goals in 102 games for Liverpool.

 

"Torres will start scoring. I just hope he waits a little bit, at least until after the tie against us,” said Ferguson

"When Chelsea signed him, everyone said what a great signing he was, and rightly so.

"Now everyone says that it was a mistake. Can people be more ridiculous? He needs time to adapt."

"Last year they beat us with an offside goal, while a month ago David Luiz should have been sent off," Ferguson remarked about United’s history with Chelsea..

"But then again, anyone who wins has a little bit of luck.

"I hope in the Champions League the wind will turn our way.

"Between us and Chelsea, there is no difference.

"It's two teams with plenty of champions, great experience and winning coaches. The small details will define the tie."
