British athlete Darren Campbell promises to get Fernando Torres firing again

Posted by - November 30, 2012 - Chelsea, Quotes

With Fernando Torres struggling for form (and by struggling I mean in danger of his career success being over), there are a whole host of people lining up to offer advice to the Spanish forward.

The latest of these is Darren Campbell, the British sprinter who won a gold medal in the 100m relay, who told the Daily Telegraph that he could get Torres back to form simply with some intensive sprint training.

It’s something best done in pre-season but Fernando just needs two weeks when he hasn’t got to worry about playing on the Saturday. It doesn’t have to be a lengthy process because these guys are already extremely fit. You’re not having to worry about the base fitness so you just go in and teach the raw speed.’

Campbell doesn’t seem to realise that Torres’ problems are part mental and part finishing and that a series of different managers, coaches and fitness experts at Liverpool, Chelsea and Spain have all tried to get Nando firing without any success.

Someone’s looking for some cash, aren’t they?
