Former Chelsea and Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has suggested that promises were made to him by AC Milan which were not met during his unsuccessful loan period with the Italian giants, according to Sky Sports.
Torres joined Milan on a two-year loan deal from Chelsea last season and made just seven Serie A starts before making a return to boyhood club Atletico Madrid in the January transfer window.
Back among the goals at Atletico
While Milan made the move a permanent one in December, they immediately loaned him out for the remainder of the 18 month contact to Atletico. Since making the return to Madrid, Torres has scored three goals, including two against arch-rivals Real Madrid in a Copa Del Rey tie.
Speaking to Spanish newspaper AS, Torres has revealed why things did not go to plan while with the Italian giants.

“I went to Italy to play, to be an important player, and at no point did I feel like it. I was in and out of the team, I played on one day, yes, and on another, no. This is not what I had spoken of from the beginning.

"My dealings with the club were excellent and I don’t have anything to reproach. But when you see it’s not going to get better, nor change the situation you have, you are uncomfortable."
Torres will be looking to strike against city rivals Real Madrid yet again as the Madrid derby kicks off on Saturday evening.
