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.
According to Torres, from a personal point of view, he can say that he achieved more at Liverpool. It was probably the time when he was in his prime and he produced some wonderful performances, but from the team’s point of view, it was Chelsea’s stint which was more successful because he got to be a part of the title winning team there.
“Liverpool was the best time in my career and with Chelsea they gave me what I wanted as a player – trophies.” Torres added.
On asked why he prefers Liverpool to be the Premiership champions this season, Torres says it’s because despite being such a good team and having such quality players, Liverpool has not won the top tier title for a long time, while Chelsea has won it in the recent past. So for this particular season, he prefers the Reds, but he would certainly be rooting for the Blues the next season.
