Will Roman Abramovich fire Fernando Torres?

November 30, 2012

Fernando Torres and Roman Abramovich

Roman Abramovich, the big spending Chelsea owner had high hopes from Fernando Torres so he did not even think twice when he signed the Spanish striker from Liverpool for GBP 50 million thus establishing himself as the sixth most expensive player in the history during the time. But, to the disappointment of Chelsea fans, Torres has not just delivered in Chelsea blue, where he has played 60 matches scoring only 11 goals. Abramovich is someone who wants results immediately, else he takes no time to show Chelsea’s exit door, but he has been very patient with Torres. But for how long?

Roman has been a big fan of Fernando Torres ever since his Liverpool playing days, where he used to score goals to the galore and the same was expected from the former Liverpool hitman as well when he joined Chelsea, but Abramovich has only been left disappointed with his performances. In spite of coming up with such poor performances, Roman has shown faith in the player and has always wanted the striker to play as Chelsea’s goalscorer. In the recent Champions League match, he was left out by Chelsea’s manager Di Mattoe on the bench, which was not liked by Abramovich. Hence, many see this as the most important reason for Di Matteo’s sacking as well.

So, Abramovich has thrown the last roll of the dice by announcing Rafael Benitez as the interim manager for Chelsea, who has got the best of the striker when he was playing for Liverpool. If Rafael Benitez cannot bring Fernando Torres back to form, then no one else can. Benitez has taken charge of two games at Chelsea, where the team has failed to score a single goal, forget Torres. Benitez has promised to work with Torres to improve upon the player, but he has himself said that he is not the old Fernando Torres.

So, with January transfer window coming up next month, Torres has got to get himself cracking or face the consequences- the dreadful exit door. He has a month to re-ignite himself else, he will be fired from Chelsea, as they would not want to have a striker in their squad who fails to score goals on a consistent basis. Hence, the ball is in Torres’ court.
