Though he hasn't always been first choice striker at Stamford Bridge this season, Torres maintains he has a good relationship with Mourinho.
"He's a normal and ordinary guy, with his ideas which he defends because they have brought him to be who he is," Torres told El Mundo Deportivo.
"But he is very far from the image of him that people can have, above all in Spain after his time in charge of Real Madrid.
"[Our relationship is] good. He lived in Madrid for three years, it's my city, and we speak about his time there, about football, about everything.
"He has said it many times, for him, football starts at the press conference the day before.
"He starts to play the game before, like [Pep] Guardiola or [Diego] Simeone."
