However, Mourinho believes that Torres has drastically improved his fitness and is pleased with his recent displays.
"On television I used to watch matches of Fernando at Chelsea and it looked to me that he was a bit heavy, a little slow," Mourinho told reporters.
"Now he looks in fantastic shape. And I think he played a very good game against Spurs. He knows that I am very happy with his performance."
Torres picked up two yellow cards for twice clashing with Jan Vertonghen.
