Fernando Torres has scoffed at claims of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho isn't interested in working with Spanish players.

Torres backed Mourinho, who is being maligned in the Spanish press after dropping national and club captain Iker Casillas from the Real Madrid side.

Torres said: "I don’t think any of us truly know what went on between them and it’s not a good idea to talk about that. No one can question Mourinho’s abilities as a coach or Iker’s ability as a player.

"He has a very good relationship with some players in this squad, with others less so, but it’s nothing to do with being Spanish. He fell out with the Spanish media, not the Spanish players."
