Fernando Torres is thoroughly enjoying working under new Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho as the Blues gear up for the new season.

The west London club are preparing for the final of the Guinness International Champions Cup in Miami against Real Madrid on Wednesday as they continue to ready themselves for the forthcoming Premier League campaign.

And the Spain striker says that the training sessions since Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge back in June have been a pleasure to take part in.

“From the first day until now training has been great, high intensity, very fun, and so you are working hard but using the ball in every exercise, so it’s very good,” Torres told Chelsea’s website.

“It’s good everyone is involved together, and the manager and his assistants do small things to make you enjoy the sessions.

“From this you can see everyone is giving everything. Everyone wants play in the first 11, so people are working even harder than even in the middle of the season when they know if they are playing regularly or not.

“Everyone is playing well, the manager is mixing everybody well, making everyone sharp for competition.

“We only have two more games until the first Premier League game, and so far everyone is looking great.”
