Since ending his turbulent time at Stamford Bridge at the beginning of this season, former Spain first-teamer and Anfield favourite – Fernando Torres – has finally opened up on what his experience with Chelsea was really like.
According to reports from the Mirror; the current Atletico Madrid man has described his time with the Blues as if he were “swimming in wet clothes”.
Torres went on to reveal: “You end up in a situation where things have not gone well for weeks, or for years.”
“The doubts (of Atletico fans) were understandable because people did not see the English league, or the short time I was at Milan.”
Despite costing Chelsea a whopping £50million back in the winter of 2011, El Nino simply never produced the form that made him such a huge hit at Liverpool.
He has to go down as one of the worst transfers in Premier League history – and perhaps for the most severe Torres critics out there – maybe even the worst.
The Spaniard is now enjoying a much better time at former club Atletico Madrid however, even if the form that saw him become such an expensive star in the first place is likely to never truly be recovered.
He may have only scored three goals since returning to the Vicente Calderon, but Fernando Torres will seemingly remain an Atletico hero regardless of where his career stands in the modern game.
