Spanish forward admits to early 'difficulties' at Stamford Bridge but says he will not give up in his pursuit of a return to the form that saw him command a 58 million euros fee.Chelsea striker Fernando Torres says he is determined to repay the fans who have supported him through his difficult start to life at the club.
"All that I need to do, above anything else, is to work," he told the Daily Mirror. "If you do that and things do not work out, you have nothing to be ashamed of."
Torres has scored just three Premier League goals since his 58 million euros switch from Liverpool in January but says he will not give up in his quest to return to form.
"I am in debt to the Chelsea fans. They have always supported me," said Torres. "And I promise them the one thing I have never done and will never do in my life is give up."
The Spain international went 903 minutes without scoring after joining Chelsea, and has found the net only twice in eight Premier League matches this season.
He remains insistent, however, that he can get back to his best.
"Whenever you go somewhere new, you expect to have difficulties," he said. "But whenever I have had difficult times, I look at myself and say: 'Yes, I can get back to my best level.'"
