Chelsea skipper Terry: Just watch Torres go next season

Chelsea skipper John Terry insists Fernando Torres will be back to his best next season.

Terry says that winning the Premier League again next season is Chelsea's prime target after Manchester United succeeded them as champions last month. The captain also believes the best is yet to come from Torres, who managed only a single goal for the club following a £50m move from Liverpool in January.

Terry said: "The season ahead is an important one for us, we want the trophy back again in May and we'll be doing everything we can to get it back. That starts from the first day of pre-season training [next month] and into the matches where we will all be working hard to show we deserve a place in the team.

"We're a great football club, we made two fantastic signings in January in Fernando Torres and David Luiz [the Brazilian defender], and I can't wait to see them both playing for Chelsea when they have a pre-season under their belts. They've fitted into the squad brilliantly already, but fans in pre-season will hopefully get to see first-hand how well they are doing.

"They have really freshened the club up, and hopefully there will be some more new signings by the time we arrive in Asia in July," he told Chelsea's website. "It's an exciting time, the whole squad is looking forward to it and will be approaching peak fitness, so I'm sure people will enjoy the games."
