“I have big, big respect for Liverpool fans so I don’t think so,” said Fernando Torres when asked if he would celebrate should he score against his former club.
Probably for the best Fernando.
The striker, who completed a £50m transfer to Chelsea on Monday, has also revealed his discontent at Anfield can be traced back to when his Spanish international team-mate Xabi Alonso was allowed to leave the club – the World Cup winning midfielder joined Real Madrid for £30m in July 2009.
“I was a Liverpool fan – When some of the players left the club, I couldn’t understand. They did the best for themselves and their families and their careers.”
To be fair, I think we’ve all been able to see that he wasn’t happy on Merseyside for some time now, so a move to pastures new, pastures where he feels he can challenge for trophies in the near future, will hopefully reinvigorate the striker.
Nonetheless, Sunday will be very interesting, and odds on Jamie Carragher being the first to give the new Chelsea number nine a kick, look very large at 6/1.
