Manchester United legend Paul Scholes admits he's shocked by the decline of AC Milan striker Fernando Torres. He wrote in the London Evening Standard: "I watched the Milan derby on Sunday and it seems that things haven't changed much for Fernando Torres. He has scored one goal all season, in his second game against Empoli, and it was the same on Sunday: no goal and substituted on 73 minutes.
"What has happened to Torres is remarkable. From the player he was in 2009, when he gave Nemanja Vidic such a hard time at Old Trafford, to the player he has become, has been one of those mysteries in football. I realise that at times at Chelsea, especially in 2012-13, he did have some decent goalscoring runs. But overall the decline has been sharp.
"At his best he was the kind of player I would have loved to have had at United. Then things changed for him at Chelsea."
