Torres: ‘Why I left Liverpool to join Chelsea’

Fernando Torres has revealed the reason why he left Liverpool to join Chelsea, to win trophies

Torres arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2011 for a then-British record £50m.

Unfortunately for him, the move did not work out, with a return of only 20 goals in 110 league games for the Blues.

Poor form, coupled with a lack of confidence, has seen Torres shipped out on loan to AC Milan this summer, with the move to become permanent.

Torres will then swap the San Siro for a return to Atletico Madrid, again on loan, where he became a household name.

Ambitious Torres said:

“For me my three-and-a-half years at Chelsea were unbelievable.

“I won the Champions League, Europa League, and FA Cup. Chelsea gave me what I was looking for when I left Spain and Liverpool: trophies.”

“It gave me all the trophies I have with clubs and I was lucky enough to also win trophies with Spain. Now I hope to win them with Atletico.”

The news is sure to leave Reds fans upset with the forward, who scored 65 goals in 102 league games for the Anfield side.

Torres once said,  back in the 2008-2009 season, He said he would be interested in returning to former club Atlético eventually, saying “I don’t know if I will retire there, but I would like to go back and finish some things that are left

to do.” Now it seems he will get the chance to do just that.
