Former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has thrown himself under the bus with Liverpool fans, after the striker referred to the London club as ‘us’ on Twitter.
After the Spanish striker’s controversial £50m deadline day switch to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in January 2011, Torres found life difficult in the English capital; struggling to find the back of the net and widely being considered a massive flop.
Various attempts at regaining some of his long lost form, and loan spells to AC Milan and Atletico Madrid later, Torres has since found comfort again at the latter of those two clubs, where he started his career in 2001.
However, after rising to fame with Liverpool, and making a name for himself as one of the most dangerous strikers around Europe in Merseyside, Torres seems to have forgotten the club that arguably made him into a global superstar.

After Chelsea confirmed the Premier League title on Friday night with a victory over West Brom, Torres tweeted his supporter for his former club.
“Congrats Champions!!! Now let’s fight for the FA Cup” reads the tweet that sent Liverpool fans spiralling into abuse for the 33-year-old.

Torres’ once great relationship with the Kop faithful seems all but a distant memory. The man who was once spotted with ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ inscribed on the inside of his captain’s armband has now sent Liverpool fans into a deeper hatred after his hugely frowned upon switch to Chelsea.
