Torres will get better - Kalou
Salomon Kalou has given Chelsea strike partner Fernando Torres a ringing endorsement, insisting the Spaniard's best was yet to come.
And Torres' management company also declared the £50million man was finally being treated in the way he "deserves" at Stamford Bridge.
"I'm glad he's playing, he's enjoying," Kalou said. "For me, he's still the striker he used to be and he just has to keep doing the hard work and the best is to come."
Bahia Internacional's Antonio Sanz echoed the sentiments of Kalou, who this week claimed his own resurgence was down to the faith placed in him by caretaker boss Roberto Di Matteo.
Kalou had no doubt Torres, who laid on his winner in Tuesday's Champions League victory at Benfica, would ultimately prove a huge success at Chelsea.
Spain striker Torres is beginning to show glimpses of the talent that saw Chelsea make him the most expensive player ever transferred between British clubs when they signed him from Liverpool.
He has started four of the Blues' seven matches since Di Matteo took charge, having played second fiddle to Didier Drogba under Andre Villas-Boas.
Sanz told pagineromaniste.com: "With Villas-Boas, he was not considered, but the arrival of Di Matteo on the bench has seen him return to have the trust that he deserves."
Having failed to find the net for five months, Torres took just three games to end his miserable run in front of goal following Di Matteo's appointment. He also maintained his fine record of assists in Tuesday night's Champions League quarter-final first leg.
Sanz added: "He played a great match in the Champions League in Lisbon, assisting the winning goal for Kalou."
