Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has no regrets over his time spent at Anfield as he admitted that one day the truth will emerge over his controversial move from Liverpool.
The Spain international gave an extremely honest and open interview to Spanish newspaper El Pais in which he not only discusses his time at Liverpool, but also opens on his difficulty to adjusting to life at Chelsea.
He reveals that he feels he still owes a lot to Liverpool and that he still feels emotionally attached to the club, especially in the last few weeks with the developments into the Hillsborough tragedy.
"I owe Liverpool a huge amount," said Torres. "To the people, to the men in charge, to Benítez and his staff, to the city. Liverpool is a fundamental part of my life. They don't remember me that way, but time will change that.
"I could not have chosen a better place to go when I left Atlético. The other day when the news broke about Hillsborough, I felt emotional. I have experienced that, I know what the people have been through, I have seen them cry. I've lived that, I made it mine.
"This has arrived too late but it's another step [in the right direction]. And it is things like that that playing for Liverpool gives you: it's a feeling."
Torres was a firm fan favourite at Liverpool as he raced to raced to fifty Premier League goals in less than three seasons, before a loss of form and a £50million offer from Cheslea, meant he walked away from Anfield.
The 28-year-old has admitted that he felt it was right to move to a club who had more chance of challenging for titles, while hinting there could be an alternative reason for his departure.
"I decided to leave because I had to take a step forwards," said the Chelsea striker. "It wasn't the best way to have gone but nor were things exactly as they were sold [to people]. One day the truth will come out. In a sporting sense, nothing was happening; a new project was needed.
"We talked about that - about growth. My son is a Liverpool fan and he was already kicking a ball before he was one. He was born in the football city; he had no choice."
Torres has also spoken of the struggle he had when he moved to Chelsea as he struggled to adapt to life under manager Andre Villas-Boas. The forward even admits that he began not to care about the outcome of games as he found himself out-of-form, and out-of-favour.
"Halfway through last season, I distanced myself from the values I had grown up with," continued Torres. "I had team-mates who didn't care if the team won or lost because they were not playing,"
"I never wanted to be like that. [But] one day I discovered that I was like them, that it didn't matter it we won or lost if I was not playing. I wasn't part of the group. I discovered that I was not happy because I had stopped being what I had always wanted to be. In the dressing room, you can never lose that group concept."
"But I learned to look at myself and to realise that the only person that can change is you. The only person who can say: 'You're making mistakes, you've got to do something' is you."
