I Have Not Been Treated Fairly Since I Joined Chelsea, Claims Fernando Torres

Spain attacker has netted just one goal all season long so far for the Blues.

Misfiring Chelsea front man Fernando Torres  believes he has not been treated fairly since he moved to Stamford Bridge two years ago, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The Spain international joined the west London club from arch-rivals Liverpool in the January transfer window of 2011 for a British-record transfer fee of £50 million.

However, it is fair to say that in the intervening period, the striker has failed to justify that hefty price tag, enduring plenty of criticism for his underwhelming displays along the way.

In total, the Blues’ club-record signing has managed to find the back of the net on just 36 occasions in his 139 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, including only 15 strikes in his 87 Premier League contests for the club since first arriving in the capital from the Merseyside giants.

And despite enjoying a far more productive campaign in front of goal in the previous campaign, when the 29-year-old netted 22 goals in total in his 64 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, only eight of those strikes actually came in the top flight though.

But the Spanish forward says that he has been mistreated since the time he first arrived at the Bridge: “It’s the feeling that I have had from the first day. There has been the situation going on with the club, the way the team are going and then my own way.

“There has been an overreaction about everything. Overreact when I did that miss or if I have a red card or I hit the crossbar instead of scoring a goal.

‘They never talk about the good things. More or less from the beginning to this day, it’s been the way I feel.”
