Chelsea legend Hasselbaink convinced Torres can still rediscover best

Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink isn't ready to write-off Fernando Torres just yet.

The 28-year-old has struggled to recreate the prolific form of his youth and a recent goal glut was undermined by a tortured display in the Club World Cup final loss to Corinthians.

Hasselbaink believes the former Liverpool striker can still get back to his best.

The Dutchman said: "I don't know - but why not? He just needs to believe in himself more.

"He is struggling a little bit with his confidence but that will only get better the more he scores.

"If he does, then I don't see why he couldn't get back to his Liverpool form.

"At least he is getting goals. He has got 12 so far.

"The only thing I can say is I would like to see him score more in 1-0s and 1-1s, those kind of goals. There are not enough deciders."
