Chelsea striker Torres: I'm happy Eto'o is here

Fernando Torres has welcomed fellow striker Samuel Eto'o to Chelsea.

The arrival of Eto'o at Stamford Bridge has pushed Torres down the strikers' roster and that was evident as the Cameroon international lead Jose Mourinho's attack against Everton on Saturday.

"There is now more competition up front but Demba, Samuel and me are not enemies, we are friends. We are team-mates and are fighting for the same targets. I think it’s really good for the team," Torres told the London Evening Standard.

"Eto’o is one of the best strikers I have ever seen. I played against him in Spain many times and you can see the record he had there with Real Mallorca and Barcelona, as well as in Inter.

"I am sure he is going to really enjoy this period of his career with Chelsea. He is training really well, I wish him all the best and will help him in every way that I can."
