Ian Wright has compassion for Fernando Torres

Posted by Admin On 9:47 AM

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Fernando Torres will never forget his shocking miss in Chelsea's 3-1 loss to Manchester United but has tipped the striker to bounce back. Torres, who scored Chelsea's only goal of the game in the beat at Old Trafford, rounded united goalkeeper David de Gea and looked odds on to pull the Blues to within a goal of salvage a draw. However, the Spain striker's left-footed effort somehow went wide with the goal at his mercy - and United held on for a 3-1 win.
Missing easy chances is something all strikers must deal with,wrote Wright in his column for the Sun.Back in 1997, I once wasted a magnificent chance from two yards out - next to Tottenham - at High bury.I blazed it over the bar and required the ground to swallow me up.Equally, though, I knew how important it was to move on from that painful moment.
Wright believe it could prove to be counter-productive for Torres, who he thinks is just weeks away from flattering the picket most feared across England again, to beat himself up over an obviously bad miss.
He wrote:He will never, ever be able to forget Sunday's howler, let's be completely honest about it. That left-footed shot will live in his memory for ever and there will always be someone to remind him.Ronny Rosenthal is still asked about his miss for Liverpool at Aston Villa in 1992.Of course, Torres would not have slept easily on Sunday night and he probably didn't get a wink.
Yet I have a lot of understanding for him, not only for that miss but because he has suffered a difficult time since amalgamation Chelsea from Liverpool and I don't think it's all been his fault.As a former striker, it's only natural that I pay particular attention to frontwards and their movement.
Torres has made runs in the hope of seeing the ball, yet his team-mates have not helped him.Instead, they have play the ball out wide or inside - without playing to the power of arguably their biggest weapon.Obviously, these tactics do not make any sense whatsoever.
