Hilarious – Ivanovic a better striker than Torres?
Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is just one goal away from matching Fernando Torres’ total in his time with the club, the Metro reports.
The Serbian international found the back of the net again this weekend as he scored the opener at home to Burnley, following on from goals against PSG and Aston Villa.
Ivanovic now has 19 Premier League goals for Chelsea – an impressive record for a defender – and one more strike will take him level with £50m flop Torres.
The Spaniard failed badly to live up to his price tag at Stamford Bridge, looking a shadow of the player he was at Liverpool, and Ivanovic’s run perhaps illustrates how poor he really was for the club.
