Liverpool legends Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres still feel dejected on the way they left the club. Meanwhile, both of them were Liverpool’s greatest strikers over their time at the club.
Both the forwards were brilliant for Liverpool. Moreover, they had extremely similar records showing their impact on the club.
Fernando Torres scored 81 goals in 142 games between the period 2007 and 2011. The Spaniard left the club for £50 million pounds in the January transfer window of 2011 to Chelsea.
On the other hand, he was replaced by 23-year-old Luis Suarez. He arrived from Ajax and went on to score 82 goals in 133 games for the club. The Uruguayan International left for Barcelona in 2014.
However, both transfers made the relations between the players and the fans bitter. As a result, both the legends feel they have to mend their strained relationship with the club.
Suarez and Torres on their time with Liverpool
Suarez went on to speak about his move to Barcelona and his relationship with Liverpool fans. He said:
“I know some Liverpool supporters were angry with me because I celebrated a goal against Liverpool here in Camp Nou [in 2019] and for that, I am so sad,”
“I accept that and I say that hopefully, they understand my situation: we were playing at home and in the Champions League semi-final.
“I lived one of the best moments of my life there and I think the supporters didn’t forget how my attitude was in the Liverpool shirt.”
Suarez and Torres never played together for Liverpool. However, they managed to play in a charity match. In an interview with LCTV, he said:
“It was just very emotional,”
“I have this song in my head and it was so important for me. Those three-and-a-half years changed my entire life and I remember every important moment there was always that song from the Kop. So to hear that once again is something I will never forget.”
In another interview in 2019, he expressed his disappointment with how he left the club. He said:
“It was a really important day for me,”
“I felt like at the end [of that game] we were in a good way. One of the regrets I have is the way I left the club. With time, I think I could explain the reasons.”
