PHOTOS: Fernando Torres in action for AC Milan, scores in 5-0 win

Sturridge And Torres

Chelsea loanee Fernando Torres received a confidence boost today when he scored in a training game with the AC Milan team.

This summer Chelsea finally ran out of patience with Fernando Torres, and the player himself had decided he had had enough of his struggles at Stamford Bridge.

He was loaned out to AC Milan on a two-year deal as a replacement for Liverpool bound Mario Balotelli, with Chelsea bringing in Loic Remy from QPR as his replacement, and now he is enjoying his time in Italy.

He has already been presented to the fans but is yet to make his debut for the club, as the international break came around at the wrong time regarding his potential debut.

But he is not involved in international action either. To rub salt in his wounds the new Chelsea striker, £32 million Diego Costa, is the new number one striker for the Spanish national team. Torres also finds himself behind Paco Alcacer in the striker race and when Costa pulled out with a hamstring injury this weekend Torres did not get the call - instead it went to 19-year-old Munir El Haddadi.

Instead Torres has been in action for AC Milan in an inter-club friendly, and he was looking sharp again. He set up one and scored another in a 5-0 win for the first-team against the Primavera side.

A good confidence boost for Torres, and Milan fans will hope he utilises that to max his full potential at the San Siro.
