Spanish international, Fernando Torres has likened his 4 years spell at Chelsea football club to swimming in wet clothes. El Nino has found his foot at Athletico Madrid ever since his sensational return this season.
The 30 year-old who netted a total of 20 goals in 119 appearances for The Blues revealed his frustrating moments at Stamford Bridge to Spanish newspaper El Pais:
“The doubts were understandable because people do not see the Premier League or the short time I was at Milan, they read the statistics, and they were not the same as always. The worst part about not playing is when you think that you are ready to do it. You try to get more minutes, taking the chances, but you end up in a situation where things have not gone well for weeks, or for years.
That is like swimming in wet clothes. I know how I am, and I am good. In the end these doubts disappear, but then others come again.”
He continued: “In the semi-final against Barcelona I scored a goal and in the final I came on with eight minutes remaining and I feel that I helped the team to overcome the result. I have good memories because winning the Champions was a dream since I was a kid when I used to go to see Atletico Madrid. Having won that Champions League (with Chelsea) makes me feel very proud.”
