Big hearted Fernando Torres (pictured right) insisted last week that he bore no grudges towards the Liverpool fans who would choose to hurl abuse at him during last Sunday’s game at Stamford Bridge.

Torres’ departure came about after he submitted a transfer request to Liverpool with just 24 hours of the January transfer window left which left the “Reds” with little option other than to sell their Spanish star.

Torres disputes this version of events saying; “The abuse I will get will be worse that what I received at Wembley recently playing for Spain. However the Liverpool fans have only heard one side of the story and they do not know the real story.”

Now, like the rest of you, I like a good story but it has to have some kind of ending, happy, sad, tragic or whatever.

Torres has left us all hanging, waiting on his side of the story, so I’m going to help out by providing the story’s conclusion for you.

It will be about broken promises, wanting to win things, how he loved the Liverpool fans and leaving against his will.

There will be no mention that Torres was playing crap or certainly no mention of that awful word ‘money’.

In the real world we all know that Torres, like all the rest of the Premiership stars, is totally motivated by money and that’s why he moved to Chelsea - end of story.

Aren’t you glad I cleared all that up for you and I wouldn’t dream of accepting a fee!
