Torres does not regret Chelsea move

Torres joined the Blues from Liverpool in a record £50million January switch.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper Marca, Torres said: “What I didn’t expect, when I got to Chelsea, was that the atmosphere would be so different from Liverpool. I expected it to be more distant given that this has a name for being a superstar team.

“There are better personal relations and more jokes between the players than at Liverpool, where everything is a lot more serious. Here you don’t have to demonstrate that you are a professional, it’s taken as the minimum.

“Winning trophies is all they care about here and, for me, the Champions League is the dream – no doubt.

“After having won the European Championship and the World Cup, it’s the maximum challenge left.

“Obviously I want to win the Premier League too, it’s one of the great prizes in the game and I honestly think that we will win more than one while I am here.”

“I knew I was an idol for the Liverpool fans, but it wasn’t the same any more. The institution was in chaos with the sale. There was all this talk of possible projects,” he added.

“In many ways it reminded me of Atletico Madrid – a great history, many ideas but without money, it needed time. I don’t have that.

“People aren’t honest in the world of football. You can’t say the truth or be clear with people. It’s a business and nobody is anyone’s friend.”
