Chelsea striker Torres excited facing former club Atletico Madrid in Super Cup

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is excited to be facing former club Atletico Madrid for the European Super Cup.

Torres admits he will always love Atletico Madrid more than any club.

But he still wants Chelsea to beat them tomorrow and lift the UEFA Super Cup.

He said: "I have missed all the previous matches against Atletico. So it had to be something special - with a title at stake. It will be the first time in my life that I don't want Atleti to win.

"I am not hiding who I am, which team I support and to which club I owe more than any other and I hope after this day it will continue like that."

Torres developed a passionate relationship with Liverpool fans before quitting 18 months ago to join Chelsea for a British record £50m.

He continued: "At Liverpool, I felt like I was at home but, in the end, when I left I realised it was not home. Atletico has always been home."
