London: Didier Drogba has said Spanish striker Fernando Torres could easily fill his boots at Chelsea.

Drogba believes Liverpool’s one-time golden boy will prove his worth at the club.

“Everybody knows Fernando is a very good player, an international player. He’s been through difficult moments here but it happens to everyone. The good thing is he has our support. He always has and I know next season he’s going to improve,” The Sun quoted Drogba, as saying.

“My first few seasons here were difficult for me. I can’t complain but it’s not easy to play for Chelsea. Chelsea is in good hands with Fernando. Of course, we will need new strikers but Torres will do the job. He will do it, no doubt,” he added.
