Fernando Torres wishes Liverpool and not Chelsea to go on to become the champions of the English top tier this season. Torres featured for Liverpool and Chelsea at the peak of his career from 2007 to 2015 and enjoyed a great time at the two clubs.
The Spaniard says that it gets very difficult for him whenever he is asked to pick one between these two clubs because he has got emotional attachment with both of them and he can’t pick one. That’s why when these two teams go head to head against each other in the Premiership or in any other competition, he prefers not watching the game because if he watches, he doesn’t know whom to support.
Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres will leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires, the player has confirmed. The 34-year-old has only made three leagues beginning of this season and has scored two goals in 20 league shows for second-placed Atletico. This he did after signing a one-year extension contract around 12 months ago.
“This will be my last season at the club,” Torres told a press conference. “It has not been an easy decision and it has been difficult to make, but I feel obliged to tell the fans. You can see that my role has been very limited; I think it’s the right time to advertise it. My conscience is clear and I think I’ve given everything I could. My idea was to hang my boots up here.”
