Torres defends Liverpool exit

Former Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has lifted the lid on his departure from Anfield and has claimed that the club lied to him, The Daily Mail reports.

Torres made the move to Chelsea in January for £50m, but has endured bad fortune since his move. The Spanish international has been on the bench for most of the season and has only scored twice so far this campaign. Torres was considered a cult hero at Anfield and his move angered the Liverpool fans, who subsequently booed him when the two sides met at Stamford Bridge. Torres has yet to make the trip to Anfield.

Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group have been blamed by Torres for his exit from Anfield. The Chelsea striker has said he has nothing against the Liverpool fans and left purely because of the false promises made by people inside the club.

Torres said: ‘The Liverpool fans don’t know the truth about why I signed for Chelsea. 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 realised I didn’t have time to be part of a project that would take years. 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’.
