One fan insisted that Torres' "problems started immediately after he cut his flying hair."

Torres left Liverpool without capturing any major silverware, but 'El Nino' scooped several individual accolades.

The former Spain international was named twice in both the PFA Team of the Year and FIFPro World XI, along with finishing third for the Ballon d'Or in 2008.

Torres captured silverware during his spell at Chelsea as he lifted the FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League.
