Stefano Eranio believes Fernando Torres did not get a fair chance at Chelsea…
AC Milan coach Stefano Eranio has claimed that Spanish striker Fernando Torres was treated unfairly during his time at Chelsea, and works in a similar way to a car.
The 47-year-old former Derby County winger has promised that Torres will enjoy a happier spell in Italy, having moved from Stamford Bridge to the San Siro in a two-year loan deal.
Torres struggled to ever find his best form in West London, after joining the Blues from Liverpool in January 2011. He managed 45 goals in 172 games for the club, only 20 of which came in the Premier League, having netted 81 times during his spell at Anfield.
According to reports in the Daily Mail, Eranio believes that Torres is ‘like a car’ and will perform if he’s looked after.
The Italian went on to explain his bizarre comparison, saying: “Torres is a very humble player, he has great technical and human qualities. In recent years he has not been in contention much and has spent a long time on the Chelsea bench.
“But he is like a car, he needs to play to find his form. He needs the confidence of the coach and to make the most of his surroundings.
“As a coach, I say that I would always want someone like Torres in the team. He arrives in Italy with great enthusiasm, and has specific characteristics that would suit Milan perfectly.”
