In a new book by Simon Hughes entitled ‘Ring of Fire: Liverpool FC into the 21st Century – the players’ stories’, Torres explains the sequence of events that led to that move.

“It was presented as if I was a traitor,” says Torres. “It was not like this in the discussion(s).

“Liverpool could not admit they were doing something wrong with the whole team. They had to find a guilty one.”

“Comolli told me that the new owners (FSG), they had an idea of how to spend their investment,” says Torres.

“They wanted to bring in young players, to build something new. I was thinking to myself, this takes time to work. It takes two, three, four, maybe even 10 years.

“I didn’t have that time. I was 27 years old. I did not have time to wait. I wanted to win. Here we are five years later and they are still trying to build – around the same position in the league as when I left.”

Torres admits he did speak to then-Liverpool boss Kenny Daglish about the possibility of leaving – but insists that was only after the club had begun discussions with Chelsea.

 

A source from within the club subsequently leaked that Torres had “verbally requested” a transfer and the striker felt this was a betrayal of his trust.

Once the player’s willingness to move to Chelsea became public, Torres admits it “changed the view of everybody, including myself”.
