Chelsea signing Torres told he will regret leaving Liverpool

Former Liverpool defender John Scales believes Fernando Torres' move to Chelsea could end in tears. Like Torres, Scales also quit Liverpool when, in 1996, he opted for a big-money move to Tottenham.

But that £3.5m switch turned sour and left the then England international realising he had made a massive mistake.

And Scales, 44, is convinced Torres will one day feel exactly the same about his controversial decision to suddenly swap Merseyside for SW6.

He told the Daily Star: "When I left Liverpool, it was my head saying I needed to move and get back to London.

"My heart was saying to stay. I let my head rule the heart and ended up regretting it.

"And I'm sure the same will happen to Torres."
