This weekend, Fernando Torres will be hoping to lead the line with Atletico Madrid as they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League Final in a repeat of the final two years ago. Having won it already with Chelsea, Torres was quick to point out that winning this one would mean so much more.

He said:

"Nothing would beat winning the Champions League with Atletico.

I won it with Chelsea, but I was not in a good place. I did not feel I was being treated well at the time -- I felt lost.

"I don't want to talk about those moments. My career is going so well, and I feel so at home and full of confidence, that I do not want to relive those days.

"I have never been happier. I love being back [at Atletico], and hope I can stay."

For me, one of the biggest regrets I have about Chelsea is the fact that it never worked out for Torres here. All of us backed him to the hilt, supported him and got right behind him to which he has acknowledged but it was one of those things that was just not meant to be.

Torres was immense at Liverpool because they had a certain way of playing as I stated at the time he was here. At Chelsea it was totally different and he never really had the Chelsea team play him the way the Liverpool side did.

At Liverpool, the WHOLE team knew to look for one of his runs off the ball whenever they had the ball at their feet. HE KNEW that the ball would be played to him if he made a telling run and it clicked for him. He felt comfortable, he knew he had the support of his manager and his team mates.

At Chelsea, the team was built to play with Didier Drogba who is a very different player to Torres. Everything was slower and built from the back to then play up to the big man. We knew we could give Drogba the ball with his back to goal and he would hold it up and bring others into play. He could drop deep, he had a physical presence, he could win balls in the air in addition to making runs off the ball. He literally had everything.

When Torres came in, he made the same runs he would at Liverpool but the ball never came. Think of how many times you had seen him wave his arms about or make a gesture in total frustration.

In addition to all this, he played at Chelsea under Managers that would see him as back up to Drogba. Look at the two biggest games we had in our run to winning the Champions League, Barcelona away and Bayern Munich in the Final. Torres started on the bench in both but came on to make a telling contribution.

I sincerely hope that Atletico Madrid win the Champions League because you look at what Diego Simeone has created there and they are a proper team that work hard and would literally die for each other. Playing for his hometown club, Fernando Torres would complete something he has dreamt of since a young boy. Good luck to him.

I'm just sorry it never really worked out here!
