Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is fed up with the mess that Juan Mata creates in the dressing room.

The pair work brilliantly together on the field but the playmaker’s locker is cause for exasperation in the dressing room.

“Juan? Yes. I just want to move my locker,” he says, with a smile.

“It’s not so bad because I want him next to me, but I have to be on top of him all the time because it’s a mess.

“It’s a mess. I don’t know if I can describe it. There are magazines, letters, pictures, clothes, creams, everything, he cannot open the door. If he did it would make a bigger mess.”

It appears that the only disagreement the pair have is on tidiness as they meet up outside the training field.

“We go out to dinner sometimes or meet up at each other’s homes to watch TV shows we all follow,” Torres confirmed.

“When you’re in a new city you try to be next to people you know, and then after that you make your own friends but we can all join together too.”
