Former Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has insisted that he had a “very good relationship” with Jose Mourinho and he learnt a lot from him during their time together.

Having completed a two-year loan deal to join AC Milan, the Spanish international was introduced to the media by the Serie A giants on Tuesday evening and was asked about his time in England.

While Torres was thankful to both Liverpool and Chelsea for giving him the opportunity to play in the Premier League and win trophies, he is happy with his decision to move to Italy in an attempt to reignite his career.

However, there was a general focus on his relationship with Mourinho in particular, but Torres had nothing negative to say about his former coach.

“I had a very good relationship with Jose. When I was signed by Milan he wished me all the best. He spoke about the passion that the city of Milan has for football and that I would settle in well. I learnt a lot from him as a coach. Perhaps in the future our paths will meet again,” he told the media, as reported on Milan’s official club website.

Shortly after, Torres was again asked about Mourinho, with the Chelsea manager recently sharing positive words about his former player by praising his professional attitude while at Stamford Bridge.

“I thank Mourinho for his words. I don’t need to say anything else. We have to always act and play as professionals,” he added.

Meanwhile, Torres has no fears over his ability to adapt to a new league and culture, but he did concede that he will be under pressure to live up to the expectations that come with the No.9 jersey for Milan.

Nevertheless, he is confident that he will be able to score goals and fire the club back into the top three in Serie A which will in turn result in a return to the Champions League next season, and it is also assumed that the former Atletico Madrid star have not yet given up of earning a recall to the Spanish national team ahead of Euro 2016.
