Fernando Torres (Liverpool to Chelsea)
If Philippe Coutinho’s fall from grace was tragic, Fernando Torres’ downfall is outright heart-breaking. At Liverpool he was a striker who terrorised defenders all over the world. In Chelsea he looked like a fan had won the opportunity to play for the club.
Chelsea paid £50 million to Liverpool to employ the Spanish striker’s service but immediately regretted the purchase as Torres managed to find the net only once in the 2010/11 season with Chelsea despite making 18 appearances.
In all, the man who made a habit out of scoring goals at Liverpool, could only score 20 goals in 110 Premier League appearances for the Blues. Torres himself recognized that he was nowhere near his best at Chelsea and vowed to try his best. Unfortunately, for an ambitious club like Chelsea, this was never going to be enough and his legendary career will forever be marred by his 4 year stay at Stamford Bridge.
