Rafa Benitez says he is leaving Chelsea with a revitalised Fernando Torres.

Torres struck in last night's Europa League final triumph against Benfica.

Benitez told Spanish radio Onda Cero: "We know that he can hurt teams on the shoulder of the last defender and he did a good job.

"I keep repeating that he has improved; he has worked well with the fitness coach Paco de Miguel and he has made great improvements with his power, his strength and his speed.

"And thanks to that he manages this type of goal of that has always been one of his strengths – hanging on the last defender and then sprinting away from them"
