Fernando Torres – reflections on the season (Guillem Balague)
May 21, 2012 § Leave a Comment
This is nothing we haven’t heard before. This is, in fact, the worst season of his life: not starting, being on the bench most of the season, that suspension after the red card, not scoring, times when AVB (and even RDM now) preferred Drogba.
And the issue is, in fact, that Drogba being in Chelsea means Fernando is only the 2nd option as a striker, since it is a system (as we all have seen) that is built around Drogba. It has worked for years. Even Marquis Del Bosque has said that only when Drogba leaves will Fernando find better form in Chelsea.
In addition, he has said that not starting in the Champions League final is the “biggest disappointment of his life”. This we have already heard in the Shreeves interview. And it must be. After all, he only came in at 85th minute. In the FA cup final, he did not play at all.
Now, people are blowing this interview out of proportion to kill the celebratory atmosphere (of course)… So I am posting this video along with the actual parade. Hear Fernando Torres singing “We are the Champions” severely off key.
Congratulations to Chelsea FC in what can only be described (as aptly put by Drogba) as a “written in the stars” win over FC Bayern München.
