Jose Mourinho: Fernando Torres needed a change

Fernando Torres says he can't wait to get started at AC Milan after completing a season-long loan from Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho believes Fernando Torres needed a "change of scenery" from Chelsea, but the Portuguese would have preferred if the Spain striker had moved to Inter Milan rather than AC Milan.

Torres agreed a two-year loan move to Milan -- and not Mourinho's former team Inter -- after a challenging three-and-a-half-years at Stamford Bridge following his 50 million pound arrival from Liverpool in January 2011.

"I'm an Interista and I would have preferred if he'd gone to Inter,'' Chelsea boss Mourinho told reporters at a UEFA coaching seminar in Nyon.

"However, I hope that he does equally well at Milan. What I can say about Fernando is that as a person and a professional, there is nothing to doubt about him.

"He's a fantastic boy and a great professional. However, he needed a change of scenery.''
