John Terry Says Fernando Torres is “World Class”

Fernando Torres

Terry claims the striker looks sharp, fit and ready to lead Chelsea to the title.

"He backs himself," he said. "He realises from the World Cup he had a slight injury and carried that towards the end of last season.

"He feels fresh, he's happy. He's fully settled. I'm certainly looking for him to get double figures goals wise.

"He was still good at times last year. He's a world-class player and the price tag is a big weight to carry on your shoulders.

"He's got all the ability in the world. He's very quick and a great finisher.

"We're delighted to have him and if he can bring goals along with what we already have then fantastic."

The £50million striker had a difficult time after his move from Liverpool in January, but the Spanish international will be keen to prove his critics wrong next season and recapture the form that saw the Blues part with so much money for him.
