Chelsea striker Fernando Torres wasn't surprised Javier Mascherano left Liverpool at the start of the season.

Mascherano quit Liverpool for Barcelona in August.

"Javier Mascherano did many good things for Liverpool but they did not treat him well when he left," Torres told Sport.

"It is a complicated situation when you leave a club but footballers always want to move forward, chase what he believes is better, because we only have eight or 10 good years."
