Torres has no mental issues with Drogba: Villas Boas

Chelsea Coach Andre Villas-Boas has rejected suggestions that Spanish football star Fernando Torres has mental problems dealing with Ivory Coast star Didier Drogba.

Responding to former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti's claim that Torres has been eaten alive by Drogba's daunting presence, The Sun quoted Villas-Boas, as saying: "I respect Carlo's opinion but, for me, it is not the case. It has not even crossed my mind to sell Didier in this transfer window. I still rely on him for what he represents as a player and icon."

He added: "We are speaking about two of the best players in the world and it would be unfair to conclude that Didier is inflicting his personality on Fernando. If that was the case it would be a mental weakness or a mental block. That is not the situation here."
