London: Spanish striker Fernando Torres has slammed Chelsea's midfielders as being "old and slow".
The Spaniard, who made a 50-million-pound move to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in January, has hit just one goal apiece for the club as also his country since switching clubs.
"When I changed clubs, I knew it was going to be a slow process, although I didn't expect it to be so long. Chelsea is, between the English teams, maybe the least English. That's because of the kind of player Chelsea has - an older player, who plays very slow, who has a lot of possession - and that's what the club is trying to change now," Torres was quoted as saying by The Sun.
