Chelsea striker Torres: I never wanted Drogba to leave

Chelsea ace Fernando Torres says he doesn't want Didier Drogba to leave.

Torres still insists he and Drogba could form an effective partnership, despite the evidence suggesting otherwise, and questioned why the Ivory Coast international chose to leave the club.

"I want to play with the best and he (Drogba) is one of the best," he said.

"I do not understand why it has to be one or the other and not both."

But with the path now clear in front of him he is already looking forward to leading the line next season, having spoken to club officials about his future.

"My goal was to talk to them at the end of the season, I needed to know what plans they had for me," he said. "We've talked and now I have no doubt what they expect of Fernando Torres. I just want to start next season already."
