He is one of them. I like him as a person. I like him as a player,” said Mourinho.“If he wants to leave it is something he didn’t say to me. At the moment he is our player, nothing more than that.“If he wants to leave I believe it is because he wants to try a new life, a new club, a new league. If he wants to leave I believe it is to try and be happier than he was in the last couple of year.” Fernando Torres in action for Chelsea 1last_img
