Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has claimed Liverpool fans don’t know the real reasons he was sold by the club last year.
Torres joined Chelsea for £50m during the 2011 January transfer window with many believing it was the Spaniard who demanded the move in search of trophies. However, the striker has suggested there are underlying reasons behind his transfer that are yet to be revealed. The 27-year-old also took the time to say that the Anfield faithful are still close to his heart.
The Spanish hit-man also went on to praise former boss Rafa Benitez for being able to send out competitive sides, despite the vast budgets available to other managers:
“Liverpool’s fans have stuck with the story the club gave and they don’t know the real story,” he told the Spanish newspaper Marca.
“I don’t feel bitter towards them, they will always be special for me. I owe so much to Rafa Benitez, no one understood me like him.
“He’s a great coach. His teams go out with just one thing in mind: compete. Even with a smaller budget his teams can compete with the best.”
