Fernando Torres on Chelsea exit: 'I needed to feel important'

Diego Lopez explains that Fernando Torres will be more useful to AC Milan than Mario Balotelli - naturally, the ESPN FC crew debate Lopez's stance.

Torres struggled to make his mark following his 50 million pound move from Liverpool to Chelsea in January 2011, with Blues boss Jose Mourinho less than complimentary about the performances of the Spanish striker throughout last season.

Giacomo Bonventura scored for AC Milan but Cagliari had the better chances to win the match, which ended 1-1.

Cagliari and AC Milan shared the spoils from a 1-1 draw at Stadio Sant'Elia, although Zdenek Zeman's Sardinians will probably feel they could have got more out of the game.

Victor Ibarbo gave the hosts the lead, but Giacomo Bonventura levelled before half-time. Daniele Conti hit the post in the second half as Cagliari came closer to finding a winner.

The point lifts Cagliari three clear of the Serie A relegation zone while edging Milan up to third, still six points adrift of the joint league leaders...
