Fernando Torres urges team to be more consistent in Premier League title challenge.
Spanish forward Fernando Torres has insisted that Chelsea must be more consistent if they want to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
Torres has had his most successful season with the London club, netting 22 goals and collecting a Europa League winner’s medal.
However, the 29-year-old has challenged himself and the rest of the Chelsea team to improve on their form, as they look set to mount a serious title challenge next year.
“We’re good enough to be consistent. We need to learn from what we have done badly this season, it’s a young squad and hopefully the experience of this year can help the team for the next one. I don’t think we’re too far away (from challenging for the title),” Torres is quoted as saying by the Belfast Telegraph.
With the departure of interim manager Rafael Benitez and Jose Mourinho heavily linked with the managerial job, Torres will be given another chance to show fans that he was worth the £50m signing fee in 2011.
A striking partnership with Belgian powerhouse Romelu Lukaku seems likely for Torres next season, and the former Atletico Madrid star hope to benefit from playing as a second striker, rather than filling in the target man role he has played in this season.
