Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed he was left “heartbroken” by Fernando Torres’ decision to quit the club for Chelsea, but believes Kenny Dalglish’s men are finally on an upward curve.

“I was heartbroken. Absolutely gutted. But I also called him after he left,” Gerrard told the Daily Mail.

“There are no hard feelings. I built up a relationship with Fernando and became his friend. He scored some fantastic goals and I have fantastic memories. I enjoyed playing with him. So you can’t go from one extreme to another and fall out with him, start criticising him.

“But he will also understand how I feel. Fernando is a bright person and he will understand that the Liverpool fans are upset as well.”

“The football club is much happier now. It’s in a better place than it has been for a few years. We’ve got new owners, who I’ve spoken to quite a lot, who are passionate about what they want to do.”I trust them, I trust them even more after what’s happened in the last week or so. And the way they’ve acted, coming towards the end of the transfer window, has impressed me. I was a bit wary at first because I was maybe a bit guilty of trusting the previous owners too much.

“This time I’ve taken a bit more time in judging them. But they’ve been brilliant so far. They have put the club back in a good place already and the last three or four weeks have been really positive. We’ve had some good results. The lads are smiling again. I’ve actually enjoyed going to work again.”
