Chelsea says investigation into Torres over

1:42 pm on 14 September 2011

An investigation by the manager of English premier league side Chelsea into comments made by striker Fernando Torres has been resolved.

Torres, who's 27, was quoted in an interview on a Spanish website as saying the club's older players were very slow.

The striker insists he was misquoted in the English translation.

After Chelsea's two nil Champions League group match win over over Bayer Leverkusen, manager Andreas Villas-Boas said the problem was solved.

Torres created both goals and Villas-Boas believes his performance shows there are no problems in his squad.

While the English translation carried the direct criticism of team-mates, a Spanish version on Torres' website carried a line that translated as saying the team play very slowly.
