Chelsea striker Torres reveals lucky mask is staying

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres admits he may play out the season in his lucky mask.

Torres has been outstanding since having to don the headgear after breaking his nose.

"I'm going to be wearing it for four to six weeks so there are still many games to come to play with the mask," said Torres. "The mask is tight, it has to be to avoid the movement and protect the nose and after training for an hour or so, it starts to hurt. However, that's better than if someone kicked me on the nose while it is recovering. I'm used to playing with it. When you are playing, enjoying the game and you score, you want to keep on playing."
