Torres retracts Liverpool comments

Torres’ comments have been quite controversial since joining Chelsea, but he has moved to clarify what he was trying to say when he suggested Chelsea were a bigger team.

“Because of its history, Liverpool is a bigger club, but it is going through a difficult time. Money was not important – I left to improve sporting-wise. I thought I would stay one more year and take it as a transition season.

“But a time comes when you lose enthusiasm, you see those in the Spanish national team are playing at a different level.”
