Torres: The goals will come soon

Chelsea forward Fernando Torres believes "the goals will soon come" as he bids to break his scoring duck for his new team.

The Spaniard has failed to find the target in seven appearances since joining Carlo Ancelotti's side in a £50m deal from Liverpool on transfer deadline day.

Torres has this week joined up for Spain's Euro 2012 qualifier against Czech Republic on Friday but he insists his domestic concerns will not weigh heavily on his mind while on international duty.

"I am not anxious about the fact that I haven't scored my first goal for Chelsea," Torres said while on a visit to his hometown of Fuenlabrada near Madrid.

"This is an issue for the papers, not for me. I am confident that the goals will soon come, but it is more important that Chelsea win than I score."

Meanwhile, former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has re-iterated his desire to return to the Premier League to tackle "unfinished business".

The Portuguese coach left Chelsea in 2007 after a hugely successful spell at Stamford Bridge before winning the Serie A title and Champions League with Inter Milan last season.

He is currently at Real Madrid -- where he is contracted for another three years -- but he insists he is planning to return to England sooner rather than later.


"I miss England and my next job will be in England," said Mourinho. "There is unfinished business. And England wants me back, no? It was the most enjoyable time of my career."

Focusing on Madrid's fortunes, Mourinho believes his team has the edge on Tottenham and is confident he can end the London club's Champions League odyssey in the quarter-finals.

Spurs' debut Champions League campaign has already delivered famous wins against Inter Milan and AC Milan, and the reward for Harry Redknapp's side is a last-eight encounter against the Spanish giants.

Mourinho concedes he has some worries about facing the tournament dark horses.

"Tottenham are a good team: they beat Inter, they beat Milan, they have ambitions, they have a good team and a good manager.

"It is a happy team, and happy teams are dangerous teams."
