Torres finally justifies his £50 million tag with 'priceless' goal against Barca

   Apr 25, 11:40 am

London, Apr 25 (ANI): Chelsea striker Fernando Torres took his team to victory after scoring a 'priceless' goal against Barcelona in a Champion's League semi-final on Thursday.

"We have great respect for Barcelona because we know they are the best in the world. For those Chelsea players who lost three years ago [in the semi-final] it is a sure way to get even. For those of us who weren't there, it is the last step towards a Champions League final," a proud Torres told The Telegraph.

The Spaniard lived upto his 50 million pound price tag after he dramatically slid the ball past his legs, giving the sight of an astonishing passage of play.

"The best team doesn't always win," Torres declared.

Torres had initially failed to track Javier Mascherano's run, allowing Barcelona to almost score the goal.

However, as Barcelona howled for a non-existent handball, the ball was pumped up to Torres and with half the pitch in front of him he ran through on Valdes, scoring a goal that helped Chelsea emerge victorious.

Torres also claimed that the year still might end up being 'memorable' for the club as they qualified for two finals, and said that "we will continue fighting to get fourth place in the Premier League." (ANI)
