Fernando Torres has revealed that AC Milan broke promises made to him during his short-stay at the San Siro earlier this year.
It's been a hectic season so far for the Spaniard, who has now been a part of three different clubs since the beginning of the campaign.
Torres left Chelsea in the summer after Jose Mourinho signed three strikers, which resulted in the Spaniard falling down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and realising the time had come to look for regular first-team football and a career revival elsewhere.
After the arrivals of Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Didier Drogba, Torres joined AC Milan on a two-year loan deal, which would see him stay in Italy until his contract expired at Chelsea and therefore be allowed to leave permanently on a free transfer.
However, just months into that agreement the Spaniard then moved back to his boyhood club Atletico Madrid on an 18-month loan deal. Milan signed the forward permanently to facilitate that move, allowing winger Alessio Cerci to go the other way.
Move to Italy proved to be misguided
During his brief stay in Italy, Torres made seven appearances for the Rossoneri , but after failing to impress he was sent on loan to his homeland, where he has already netted three times, including goals against Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.
In a recent interview, Torres was asked about his time in Italy, and he admitted that promises were broken by the San Siro club.
"The situation was so – I went with an expectation and with an idea which, later, was not met,” he told Spanish newspaper AS.
“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."
