Football: Torres bemoans overreaction to Chelsea bad times
LONDON (REUTERS) - Fernando Torres knows he needs to do more to justify his British record transfer fee although he feels there has been an exaggerated reaction to the bad moments he has endured since joining Chelsea in January 2011.
The Spain striker has scored 37 goals in 139 appearances for the west London club since leaving Liverpool for 50 million pounds (S$100.1 million) but believes he is unfairly treated when things go wrong.
"There has been an overreaction about everything," Torres told Chelsea Television. "Overreact when I did a miss or if I have a red card or I hit the crossbar instead of scoring a goal.
"It was a good season (last year), a good number of goals (23) that gave us a chance to fight for trophies but if you ask the people, they will say he can do better, should do better.
