Chelsea legend Zola: AVB trying to spark up Torres with axing

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola feels Andre Villas-Boas is trying to spark Fernando Torres into life by axing him.

Zola claims that a snub from Villas-Boas might help inspire the Spaniard.

He explained to talkSPORT: "I'm sure the boss [Andre Villa-Boas] knows what he's doing.

"Sometimes players don't like to be dropped and, when they don't like something, they react. That's what Villas-Boas is trying to do with Torres.

"He wants a reaction from him and wants more from him."
