Torres: No regrets over Blues move

The 26-year-old is yet to score for the Blues since making a

£50million January switch. However, the World Cup winner

insists life is good at Stamford Bridge as Carlo Ancelotti’s men

look to secure a place in the Champions League quarter-finals, with

what is expected to be a routine victory over Copenhagen next week

as they lead 2-0 from the first leg. Speaking to Spanish newspaper

Marca, Torres said: “What I didn’t expect, when I got to Chelsea,

was that the atmosphere would be so different from Liverpool. I

expected it to be more distant given that this has a name for being

a superstar team. “There are better personal relations and more

jokes between the players than at Liverpool, where everything is a

lot more serious. Here you don’t have to demonstrate that you are a

professional, it’s taken as the minimum. “Winning trophies is all

they care about here and, for me, the Champions League is the dream

– no doubt. “After having won the European Championship and the

World Cup, it’s the maximum challenge left. “Obviously I want to

win the Premier League too, it’s one of the great prizes in the

game and I honestly think that we will win more than one while I am

here.” Torres also revealed uncertainty over Liverpool’s ownership

helped make up his mind to leave Anfield. “I knew I was an idol for

the Liverpool fans, but it wasn’t the same any more. The

institution was in chaos with the sale. There was all this talk of

possible projects,” he said. “In many ways it reminded me of

Atletico Madrid – a great history, many ideas but without money, it

needed time. I don’t have that. “People aren’t honest in the world

of football. You can’t say the truth or be clear with people. It’s

a business and nobody is anyone’s friend.”
