Ex-Chelsea coach Wilkins: Blues must keep faith with Torres

Former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins says the club must keep faith with Fernando Torres.

Many are calling for England forward Daniel Sturridge to replace the former Liverpool man in the centre of attack.

"You can never give up on any player, no matter how good or bad they are. You must always try and work to get the best out of anyone," Wilkins told talkSPORT.

"He's currently in a period where he's not scored for 20 games and it's the longest I've seen a world class player not score for, but you shouldn't give up on Fernando.

"He's had chances but he's not been confident enough to take them. You can't give up on people though, you have to keep working."
