Fernando Torres started his career at his boyhood club, Atletico Madrid, before leaving for Liverpool, then Chelsea.
His move to London was an unpopular one for those in Merseyside, but Torres reminded them that he never kissed their badge.
I never kissed the Liverpool badge. Never. No. No. I never did. I see some players doing that one week after joining a club, but the romanticism in football has gone. It’s different now. People are coming and leaving.
I only want to score goals and do my job. When I was born in Madrid, I was not a Liverpool fan or a Chelsea fan. I was an Atletico fan. I still am. They’re the only badge I will kiss.
Torres returned to Atletico Madrid last season and has kissed the badge when he’s scored.
