Liverpool Fans Are Losing Their Minds Over Fernando Torres' Tweet To Chelsea

Liverpool Fans Are Losing Their Minds Over Fernando Torres' Tweet To Chelsea

Fernando Torres has enjoyed a complex relationship with Liverpool fans over the past 10 years.

Firstly, the Spanish striker was a hero of the Kop. He tormented Premier League defences on a regular basis and, with Steven Gerrard playing just behind him, forged a partnership that propelled the Reds' to what was at the time their best fought title challenge in the Premier League era during the 2008/09 season.

Then came El Nino's £50m move to Chelsea in January 2011 which saw Liverpool fans revolt against their once beloved striker. Torres was greeted with a reception even Gary Neville would have been proud of at Anfield whenever he returned in a blue shirt.

However, as Torres' form continued to deteriorate at Stamford Bridge and he seeked employment elsewhere, following moves to AC Milan and Atletico Madrid, Liverpool fans began to warm to the Atleti striker once more, seemingly forgiving him for taking Roman Abramovich's money and allowing him to be recognised as a club icon once again.

Until today, that is. Torres took to Twitter in the aftermath of Chelsea's league title clinching victory over West Bromwich Albion last night to congratulate his former club on their success.

The post was not exactly well received by the red half of Merseyside, though.

Despite his poor goal scoring return during his time at Stamford Bridge, Torres still won an FA Cup, a Europa League and a Champions League while he has failed to lift any major titles with Liverpool or Atleti.
