Torres: Mourinho doesn't explain when you're dropped

The Spaniard admits he is never given a reason when he starts from the bench but insists he has become used to the Special One's way of working this season
Fernando Torres has revealed Jose Mourinho has never explained his selection decisions to his players since his return to Chelsea.

Torres has often found himself rotated with Samuel Eto'o by Mourinho this season with both proving slightly underwhelming in front of goal, having netted just eight goals each.

And the Spaniard admits he is never given an explanation by his manager when he starts on the bench, but insists he has grown used to the Special One's way of working.

"You just get used to it and try to respect his decisions," Torres told Marca. "Mourinho has shown that everybody will get a chance and we've all been through the same thing.

"He likes to rotate the squad and shake up the team depending on the opposition. There are two months left in the season and we have to stay focused."

Torres also insists he has a very good relationship with Eto'o, despite often finding himself below the Cameroonian in the pecking order this season.

"It's great, he's a genius," the Spaniard added. "He's doing what he's always done, scoring goals.

"Under Mourinho you don't know if you're going to play or not, so you have to be fully fit and ready."
