Chelsea star backs Mourinho in season assessment

Spanish international Fernando Torres believes there are many positives to take from Chelsea’s season.

Spanish international striker Fernando Torres has backed Jose Mourinho’s assessment regarding Chelsea’s season this year.

The Blues look set to finish the season trophy-less following their recent defeat in the Champions league semi-final, yet Mourinho has remained adamant that this campaign will help build for a better future.

A number of top class names have come through the Stamford Bridge doors during both the summer and winter transfer windows, and with age on their side, this current Chelsea team have the potential to go on and dominate.

Despite joining the Blues in 2011, Fernando Torres is now considered an experienced member of Chelsea’s squad and the Spaniard backed his boss’ season assessment in an interview with Chelsea TV.

“I think we are building very good things for the future. As the manager says, it’s a season to see where we are – we have been competing for the Premier League after a few seasons out of the title race. In the Champions League, last season we couldn’t go through the group stages so we are improving.”

Torres added: “A group of young players are learning to play as a group and I think there is a lot of positives to take from this season.”

Chelsea currently lie in second place in the Premier League, two points adrift of league leaders Liverpool and one ahead of Manchester City who have played a game less.

With just two games remaining, Jose Mourinho has reiterated that Chelsea have no chance of winning the title and he will be keen to add a new striker this summer in a bid to build on this season's improvements.
