Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has admitted that Steven Gerrard told him to leave Liverpool.

Torres has revealed that Gerrard told him to leave Liverpool prior to his £50million switch to Chelsea.

“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 told The Sun.

“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.”
