Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is in fear for his job, says Fernando Torres' mentor. Antonio Sanz, Torres' former agent and the ghost writer of his autobiography, says Chelsea and Villas-Boas are to blame for the striker's struggles.

Sanz said: "Villas-Boas is not fulfilling Chelsea's expectations and he's really scared because he is really close to getting sacked.

"It's true that Fernando Torres' stats aren't that great and that's the reason he's not with Spain for the Venezuela game.

"But I don't think Torres has a problem, it's just that Chelsea aren't helping him find his form.

"According to Chelsea's players, there is a bad atmosphere in the dressing room."
