Jose Mourinho has ruled Fernando Torres out of tomorrow’s London derby at West Ham.
The manager, speaking at his media conference this Friday lunchtime, reported the striker has almost recovered from an adductor muscle injury suffered prior to the home game against Schalke earlier this month, but not yet. Torres rejoined the squad for training yesterday.
Ashley Cole, who came off in the second half of England’s international on Tuesday due to his recent rib injury, is in the squad for tomorrow’s game.
‘Ashley still feels it a little bit because it is a situation where he will have pain for quite a long time,’ said Mourinho.
