FERNANDO TORRES has sensationally revealed that Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard advised him to join Chelsea.
The Spaniard swapped Anfield for Stamford Bridge in a £50m British record switch back in 2011.

And Torres has revealed that the Reds legend told him to do what was best for his own career, the Sun reports.

Torres said: "There's one player that influenced me above anyone else and that's Gerrard. He changed my career, my ambition, wanting to win, he changed everything.

"Even when I was leaving Liverpool he told me 'go, think about yourself. Do what's best for you — you've nothing to prove'.

"He changed the way I saw things, telling me that I could get much higher than what I had always thought. I'll never find a team-mate like him."

The Atletico Madrid striker won the Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League during his time in west London but never managed to achieve the same consistency as he did for the Kop side.

Torres netted an impressive 81 goals in 142 appearances during his time on Merseyside.
