Fernando Torres Launches Attack On Club Owners

Fernando Torres has launched another attack on Liverpool’s American owners claiming they broke promises and forced him out of Anfield.

The Chelsea striker claims the new owners, lead by J.W Henry, failed to keep promises they made to him when they took over the club and the Spaniard wasn’t prepared to remain at Liverpool for a “project that would take years”.

The 25-year-old spent 3-and-a-half years at Liverpool and became an club hero during his time there, but the Anfield faithful were left stunned after his £50m move to Chelsea last January, something Torres can’t understand:

“The Liverpool fans don’t know the truth about why I signed for Chelsea,” Torres told Spanish television.

“The fans don’t even know half of what happened. They don’t know what the people in charge at Liverpool are like – they have a completely different perception of what they are like.

“They made promises that they didn’t keep and I left because I realized I didn’t have time to be part of a project that would take years.

“I have nothing against the Liverpool fans,” he said. “I didn’t want to leave Liverpool the way I did but the club lied. I was let down and I don’t understand why the fans hate me.”

    He’s 27. He was sensational when he was 25. But the 25-year old Fernando Torres didn’t moan about the people that paid his wages. 27-year old fernando torres is a very different matter

    This reminds me of a couple that has divorced. One has started to move on in a positive fashion and the other, who has not had as much success, is still bitter and holding on.
    Judging by his attitude, he seems like dressing room poison

    Torres was part of big plan at Liverpool and he was great for us. But for him to say could not wait around for funds to improve the team shows his heart was not at Liverpool but as a glory hunter wanting accolades fast. But he choose the wrong team to win things should of gone to Man C haha egg on your face Torres. But saying all that he was a Liverpool hero and would love for him to come back for cut price 20 mil.
