Fernando Torres: Spanish star joined Chelsea after Liverpool owners lied to him

Published

Fernando Torres claims he joined Chelsea in 2011 after Liverpool’s owners “lied” to him.

The former Spain international, 36, controversially swapped Anfield for Stamford Bridge in a £50million ($A88 million) move after scoring 81 goals in just 142 games.

However, Torres’ time at Chelsea yielded far worse results as he bagged only 45 goals despite playing 172 times.

But he did win trophies in London, the Atletico Madrid idol leaving the Blues with one FA Cup, one Europa League and the 2012 Champions League trophy.

And Torres claims “lies” from then-Liverpool owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks forced him to move to a club where he could win silverware.

City were without a host of first-team regulars due to injury and coronavirus infections, but the deficiencies at the back that undid their title defence last season were again exposed by the pace and finishing prowess of Vardy as a Pep Guardiola team conceded five for the first time in his coaching career.

Leicester stormed to the top of the league, but had to come from behind to extend their perfect start to the season as Riyad Mahrez’s stunning strike against his former club opened the scoring after just four minutes.
