The Renaissance of Fernando Torres

Since Jose Mourinho’s arrival to Chelsea, it has been clearly indicative that the revival of Spaniard Fernando Torres may have just begun. Lately, the striker known as ‘El Nino’ has been in magnificent form which has resulted in him scoring three goals in his last two games against Schalke and Manchester City.

A lot of football opinionated fans think the Special One Jose Mourinho’s impact at Chelsea has been the reason why Torres is starting to score goals again.

Fernando Torres celebrates goal against Barcelona

Since Torres’ departure from Liverpool to Chelsea for £50 million, a lot of critics were writing him off saying he was nowhere near worth the price Chelsea paid for him. However, he has scored crucial goals for Chelsea, including the one against Barcelona in the Champions League semi final, which saw Chelsea beat Barcelona at the Nou Camp after defending for their lives.

The lack of goalscoring opportunities for Torres is because of self confidence according to many football fans and pundits. Moreover, the Spaniard has also had some injuries which has resulted in him having less playing time on the field.

But now Torres seems to be in fine form again and with Chelsea in unbeaten form, the players seem to love playing for Jose Mourinho, which is why I for one think has the time begun now for the renaissance of Fernando Torres. Only time will tell whether this great form of Fernando Torres will continue.
