|—||Jose Mourinho on Fernando Torres (via azpi)|
He has shown good dedication and work during this period (during the time he’s been suffering from the injury) almost all day every day, so he’s back,” said Mourinho of a player who has scored only once in the Premier League this calendar year.”
"He’s been doing well for this season. Sure, he hasn’t scored in the Premier League but, for some matches, he has not even been on the bench. I’ve left him out, so he has not benefited from consecutive matches. But he played very well against Bayern (in the Uefa Super Cup) and was very proactive against Tottenham Hotspur, very dynamic, the best people had seen for quite a long time. The fact he recovered so well from his injury is not just down to the medical department but also his feeling. He had the same feeling playing that game against Tottenham as everyone did watching him. He wants to be back. He knows important matches are coming up and he wants to play a part in them, hopefully scoring one or two goals. Strikers base their confidence on scoring.
