If you're a football fan, you know what I'm going to write. As of today, some were shocked with Fernando Torres' big transfer. He has signed a contract with Chelsea. As we all know Chelsea is one of Liverpool's biggest rivals. Few of my friends a.k.a avid supporters of Liverpool were all upset, unhappy and sad when they heard the news. I heard it from my dad. Even I was shocked at that time although I kinda knew that he's going there. Yeah you know the rumors.
I understand why some of my friends were making a big deal out of this issue. Yeah it's simply because out of many places to go, why go to Chelsea. They said that at least if he were to go to another league, it would have been somewhat relieved. Besides he kinda put hope to the fans saying that he's loyal to the club; he said that he'll never play for another club in Premier League.
I guess it must have been heart-wrenching. But I think he has a right to think of his career and like he said
"I felt from last summer that I need to do a step forward in my career and for my ambition as a footballer".
Being his fan, one should respect his decision. Besides, this transfer thingy is inevitable. I think he did say that he wanted to go to a club that's gonna win the title of league, something like that. Anyhow, you can't keep one person forever in a club. But then looking at their captain, I'm somewhat amaze at Gerrard. You know, he's loyal to Liverpool, at least for now.
Few of my friends were so devastated that somehow they even want to burn or throw away their Torres' number 9 jersey. But I know they're not gonna do so. They just said that out of sadness.
About the transfer, I think let's just support him and I know Liverpool is going to find another hero. Honestly, I feel like I'm in no position to say anything. So let's stop here.
P/s: I'm indulging in the past memories when Henry left Arsenal.
