RAFA Benitez has hailed Chelsea striker Fernando Torres as “amazing” – at defending corners.
Interim Blues boss Benitez attempted to deflect more criticism of Torres’s form in front of goal – resorting to applauding the £50m man’s contribution at defending corners.
“It’s not just scoring goals,” Benitez said. “We changed his position in corners, for example.
“If you analyse the corners against, he was amazing.
“Two or three times he’s cleared the ball and afterwards was just doing man to man because it’s what he had to do.
“So, he’s helping the team, in this case to defend.”
Yet Goaltastic can’t see him slipping into John Terry’s shoes any time soon…
