The fans of AC Milan might have been getting a little impatient with the on-loan striker Fernando Torres, but, Filippo Inzaghi, the manager of the team, believes that the Spaniard would be able to get in form eventually.
Torres’ parent club Chelsea has placed him on loan to Milan for a couple of seasons.
The 30-year old has already made 8 appearances for the Rossoneri, but, has failed to shake the net more than once.
The fans want him to be dropped, but, Inzaghi, the other day, made it clear that he was willing to give Torres a bit more time to find his feet in Italy.
Talking to the reporters, Inzaghi said, “I back Fernando. We always knew he would be rusty to start with as he had not been active that much in the recent months. There is no point getting impatient. It’s about playing him as much as possible and giving him the much needed match practice. He would start striking sooner or later.”
When asked about the unhappiness of the fans after that Palermo loss, the 41-year old Italian said, “As I told you earlier, patience is needed. We were never going to be leading the table. We are an emerging unit. There would be off days, but, the important thing is that the boys were fully committed. There was no sign of recklessness.”
“If we keep trying hard, the results would go in our favour. There are positive vibes in the camp. We are all hopeful. More than half of the season is still there.”
Milan’s current position in the Italian first division table is 7th. The margin between them and the table toppers Juventus is of 9 points. All the teams have played 10 matches so far.
