Fernando Torres showed a glimpse of his past glories by scoring for AC Milan in his first start for the club.
The Spanish striker, who joined Milan on a two-year loan deal from Chelsea last month, helped the Rossoneri hit back from a 2-0 deficit to claim a point at Empoli on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old headed home an Ignazio Abate cross to spark his team's comeback.
– Milan striker Fernando Torres
I'm thrilled to have scored, but I would change that for a win. I'm better physically but I'm not yet 100 per cent, although I am able to play. I'm trying to adapt to the demands of the team.
It's easier when you have great players around you, like I do at Milan, and now I'm getting to understand how the team plays, what type of rivals you face in Serie A, which is a different league with respect to La Liga and the Premier League.
I am happy and I'm gaining confidence. Of course, you can always do better.
Fernando Torres is desperate to make his AC Milan debut on Sunday as the Rossoneri look to claim their second straight win at the start of the season away to Parma.
The Spanish striker joined Milan earlier this month on a two-year loan deal from Chelsea and is eager to play for his new club.
– Torres speaking to www.acmilan.com.
I can't wait. I really wanted to play in Serie A having experienced the Premier League and La Liga.
I want to score many goals and help Milan fight for titles and qualify for European competition.
I want to return to compete amongst the best.
