Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has said that he is fully rested following a layoff over the international break.
The Spaniard was left out of Vicente del Bosque's squad for the recent World Cup qualifiers against Finland and France as he continues to struggle in front of goal.
Despite being disappointed at his exclusion, Torres stated that he is ready to get back to business as the Blues take on Southampton at St Mary's this afternoon.
"It was relaxing, but everyone wants to be involved with the national team and not have this time available," Torres told the club's official website.
"It was a good break and I enjoyed it with my family and had some rest, and now I'm ready for the next challenge."
The 29-year-old has scored just seven goals in 28 Premier League appearances this season.
