Fernando Torres Launches Attack On Club Owners
Fernando Torres has launched another attack on Liverpool’s owners claiming they broke promises and forced him out of Anfield, leading to his £50m move to Chelsea
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.”
