Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has defended Fernando Torres after his dismissal against Swansea City.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has defended Fernando Torres after his dismissal against Swansea City.

Despite scoring again for the Blues, Torres was shown a red card for his two-footed tackle on Mark Gower. Chelsea boss Villas-Boas had no complaints with referee Mike Dean’s decision to brandish the red card but admits he won’t be seeking an apology from the £50million striker

“There’s nothing to apologise for,” Villas-Boas said. “It’s the referee’s decision.”

Admitting it was a “good decision” by Dean, he added:

“It’s part of the nature of the game, and the referee has decided on that.

“It’s a pity because the spectacle was promising.”

Despite going down to 10 men Chelsea comfortable cruised to a 4-1 victory. You can watch the tackle here.
