Former Chelsea And Liverpool Star Says Premier League Is Not All It’s Cracked Up To Be

Torres slams the English top tier.

Torres first arrived in England in 2007 upon joining Liverpool from Atletico Madrid and enjoyed three-and-a-half impressive years with the Reds before making his next move.

It’s a testament to how highly regarded the Spain international was at Anfield that the Blues were moved to pay a then British record £50m for the forward in January 2011.

However, the success Torres had enjoyed on Merseyside was in stark contrast to his form in the English capital, where injuries appeared to greatly affect the way he played and despite winning more silverware the 30-year-old was widely considered a flop.

The Spaniard did spend three-and-a-half years at Stamford Bridge as well, before finally leaving for Milan over the summer and the attacker has some choice words for the the English top flight.

“Seven years [in England] were enough,” Torres was quoted by ESPN.

“It’s a great league, but it seems better than it is because they know how to sell it and push it more than in other European countries.”

After scoring on his debut for the Rossoneri, Torres has once again struggled to find form at the San Siro and in eight appearances since has failed to find the net again.
