Chelsea paid Liverpool a then British record fee of £50m for Torres and his record of 45 goals in 172 appearances isn’t all that prolific but Torres believes he should be judged by the medal haul he amassed during his time in west London, stating;
‘Chelsea gave me what I was looking for when I left Liverpool… trophies,’
‘I’ll always see it as a success.’
Whilst it’s true that during his time at Chelsea Torres won Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup winners medals it’s perhaps debatable as to how much he contributed to that success, bar a crucial semi-final goal against Barcelona.
Torres will look to re-ignite his career in the Spanish capital after a poor spell at AC Milan and Diego Simeone will hope that the former fan favourite can once again deliver the goods.
