Napoli coach Rafa Benitez was delighted to work with Fernando Torres at Chelsea.

Torres finished the season with 22 goals to help Chelsea finish third in the Premier League, guaranteeing Champions League football for Benitez's successor Jose Mourinho on his return to London.

"Torres is in great physical condition. He's a different player," Benitez said. "When I came to Chelsea we were in a rut and he pulled us out of that situation.

"Mourinho's arrival? In football there are a lot of things that you are not allowed to say, but Mourinho's arrival was as clear to me as it was to you reporters and to the players alike."
