David Villa Backs Torres Move to Chelsea

You can call it sentiments. You can also call it the spirit of brotherhood. You are right especially if you think that you are right.

Spain striker David Villa has backed international team-mate Fernando Torres’ decision to leave Liverpool and join Chelsea in a £50million deal.

Torres did not enjoy a happy debut for the Blues, being substituted against his old club in the second half just before the Reds grabbed the only goal of the game through Raul Meireles.

However, Barcelona star Villa believes Torres made the right decision to quit Anfield for Chelsea.

He told Betfair: “Liverpool are not enjoying a good year. I am totally convinced that his move to Chelsea will go well and he will succeed in London.

“It’s been very difficult for him, but I’m pleased because I know he wanted to go there. He is very happy and I wish him well.”

World Cup winner Villa also said Andy Carroll, who Liverpool signed to replace Torres in a £35million deal, was “worth every penny”.

Villa, who cost Barca around £34.2million when he joined them from Valencia last summer, added: “Each year there are big transfers of this type. It’s normal. All teams need to strengthen when they want to win things.

“Liverpool needed to reinforce after the sale of Fernando. They (Carroll and fellow new recruit Luis Suarez) are two great players who are worth every penny. I’m sure they’ll be a hit with the fans.”

Do you think David Villa did the right thing by being in total support of Torres departure from Liverpool to Chelsea? Well, everyone is entitled to his opinion. So, if you think otherwise then you have to state your own opinion.
