Fernando Torres has refused to discuss his spell with Chelsea, but spoke highly of his time at Liverpool.
Torres, who was omitted from Spain’s Euro 2016 squad earlier this week, won a Champions League, a Europa League and an FA Cup trophy in four seasons at Chelsea, but struggled to replicate his previous goalscoring form.
The Spaniard left Stamford Bridge to join AC Milan on loan in 2014, before the move was made permanent in 2015. Torres then returned to hometown club Atletico Madrid on loan, where he is enjoying an Indian summer of sorts.
Torres has scored 11 goals in 30 La Liga appearances for the third-placed side, while he has helped Atletico reach the Champions League final.
When asked by ShortList magazine whether he regrets joining Chelsea in 2011, he replied: “I am so happy and playing with such confidence right now, that I am not willing to relive any bad moments at all.”
The 31-year-old spoke with more positivity about his first Premier League club, Liverpool, who he scored 81 goals for in 142 games from 2007 to 2011.
“Liverpool was a special city that took to me, I will always remember how special that place was. I obviously don’t miss the rain,” he said.
“I have been very impressed with some of the football they have been playing this season. Liverpool Football Club belongs in the Champions League, and I hope that is where they are very soon.”
