Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola insists Fernando Torres is just lacking confidence.

Zola says it will get down to man-management if Torres is to get out of his shocking slump.

"It's a matter of confidence, obviously," said the Italian.

"To understand exactly what the problem is, you have to be close to him, you have to know him very well - what kind of character he is, how he thinks.

"Only a person who is close to him can understand that.

"From my point of view, he needs to be a little bit more confident and that's all."
