Fernando Torres has claimed Liverpool's broken promises were to blame for his move to Chelsea.

Torres, who could play against his former club if he makes his Blues debut today, once said he would not play for another English club.

But following his sensational transfer on Monday, the Spain striker said: "I said that at that moment, I didn't think I would play for another club - because at that moment Liverpool were giving me what they promised ... but not now,"

He added: "I think one of the important points is in my first two seasons at the club, they played in the semi-finals of Champions League and finished second in the Premier League, very close to Manchester United.

"Then we were very, very close to being one of the top teams for a long time because everyone was together and everyone was moving in the right direction.

"But when you let (Xabi) Alonso and (Javier) Mascherano leave, that is a clear message. It was important, not so much for me, but for the club."
