Fernando Torres has thanked both Chelsea and Liverpool following his loan move to AC Milan, reports the Daily Star. 

Torres, aged 30 joind the Italian Serie A side on a two year loan deal, a loan deal which will see his Chelsea contract expire in the process. 

Chelsea signed Torres in a £50 million fee from Liverpool in the January of 2011, which was then a British transfer record, however, the Spaniard failed to live up to expectations at Stamford Bridge. 

The striker then thanked both clubs in a recent interview: “Obviously I could see what the season at Chelsea was going to be. They signed a striker that was expecting to play and I need to have this feeling of being important,” Torres said. 

“I want to thank my two English clubs, Liverpool for bringing me to the Premier League and Chelsea for the trophies I won.

“After all these years, however, I needed a change, something that would give me the desire to play, to feel important.

“AC Milan is all I needed, a great club with great fans where I will try to shine and come back myself.

“We need to return to the first three (Serie A teams) and I want to get back my past levels.

“I’m happy to be here, I can’t wait to begin. I played in La Liga and in the Premier League, now I am in the third most important league in Europe.”
