Chelsea boss Di Matteo convinced of big 12 months for Torres

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is convinced of a big season ahead for Fernando Torres.

Di Matteo believes the next 12 months will be positive ones for the player.

"I did speak to Torres after the final (Euros), I had a chat with him the morning after and we have been in touch since as well." he told chelseafc.com.

"It was a feeling he had at the time. There are no concerns about Fernando at all and I am expecting him here in a good mood, buzzing and to be very good next season.

"I was very happy with Fernando [last season]. I said this many times and winning the Euro 2012 Golden Boot, being European champion and the trophies he won with us should give him a lot of confidence - but I was always very happy with him and I expect him next season to be a fantastic player for us."
