Fernando Torres insists he’s aiming to be Milan’s top scorer this season, despite an indifferent start to his Rossoneri career.
Th澳门外围投注e Spaniard arrived at San Siro on a two-year loan deal from Chelsea, but has only managed one goal in his nine appearances so far.
Keisuke Honda has shouldered much of Milan’s goalscoring burden this season with six goals in 11 games, and Torres says it’s time for the strikers to stand up and be counted.
“If a game ends goalless but we’ve created five chances that’s a good sign,” the World Cup winner explained to Gazzetta de皇冠外围投注llo Sport.
“There have only been a few games where we’ve created less than we should have. That’s a problem.
“However, it’s now up to us, the forwards. Honda can’t always score.
“My goal is still to be top scorer. Milan brought me here to score and take advantage of chances, it’s my job.
“If I don’t do that I belong somewhere else.
“Having said that, scoring a goal isn’t an obsession. If I see a teammate in a better position I will pass it to them.
“Here at Milan we have to restart, but I know from experience you can’t rush these things.
“Getting back into Europe is the main goal o真人外围投注f course, but we mustn’t become to anxious about it.”
Milan face Inter in the Derby della Madonnina on Sunday, and Torres is well aware of the significance of the game.
“The derby excites me a lot. The derby is pure passion, for both players and fans.
“The first thing the fans said to me at the airport in August was ‘Win the derby’.
“This is a match that lasts six months. It’s everywhere. I hope I can score.”
