Chelsea boss Mourinho rules out striker signing

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has ruled out buying a new striker this month.

He revealed he would not be looking for new finishers in the next two weeks and that the Blues strikeforce have his full backing.

"Fernando (Torres) is calm. He knows we are not going into the market now," said Mourinho.

"In the summer, normally a club like Chelsea is always trying to improve and get new players but he knows that we like him and support him and he knows there is no problem.

"Everyone needs strikers to score goals; the strikers are the goalscorers.

"If you have players in other positions who can score an important number of goals - better.

"If you have a Frank Lampard - better. If you have Eden Hazard - better.

"But the strikers are the ones that normally score the goals."
