Rush wrote in the Daily Mail: "Torres was the best striker in the world at Liverpool. Heâ€™s still a great player. Heâ€™s had injury problems, though. Sometimes at Chelsea, he has played a slightly different role. At Liverpool, he was playing on the shoulder and was extremely quick. Heâ€™s different now. Mourinho would like Rooney but if he doesnâ€™t get him, then Torres could be the answer. He must still have the quality but he needs the confidence.
"It canâ€™t help his confidence when Mourinho plays with no strikers at Old Trafford. Torres has got to battle for his place. He can come off the bench and win the game. "
