Torres: I didn't care if Chelsea lost

Published 2 Comments

Fernando Torres admits there was a time he did not care if Chelsea won or lost, but is now enjoying a new lease of life with the European champions.

The Spain striker endured a difficult spell following his £50million move from Liverpool in January 2011, finding himself on the fringes of the Blues team. Torres revealed in an interview with El Pais that led to him becoming disenchanted with life at Stamford Bridge.

He told the Spanish newspaper: "Halfway through last season, I distanced myself from the values I had grown up with. I had team-mates who didn't care if the team won or lost because they were not playing. I never wanted to be like that - [But] one day I discovered that I was like them, that it didn't matter if we won or lost if I was not playing."
