Result eases Torres' disappointment
Fernando Torres put his "big disappointment" at not starting Chelsea's Champions League triumph to one side after helping them to win.
Torres admitted he had expected to be in the line-up in last night's epic 4-3 penalty shootout win over Bayern Munich, with rookie Ryan Bertrand instead getting the nod.
"I was expecting to start," said Torres, who came off the bench to win the corner that saw Didier Drogba snatch a 1-1 draw in normal time.
"It was a big surprise for me, a big disappointment. But, in the final, the main thing is to win - it doesn't matter who plays."
Torres only had one thing on his mind after being thrown on to help rescue Chelsea's Champions League dream.
"We needed to attack," the £50million man said, having added the biggest prize in club football to his European Championship and World Cup winners' medals with Spain."
