Liverpool's Torres on Atletico Madrid switch: This is the worst news

Liverpool ace Fernando Torres is upset that his celebrated return to Atletico Madrid has been blocked.

UEFA have admitted Liverpool fans face major disruption next week after their Champions League match against Atletico Madrid was switched to a neutral venue.

The ruling will also deny Fernando Torres the chance to return to his former home ground.

Atletico have been hit with a three-game stadium ban by UEFA following "crowd incidents" during the Champions League game against Marseille on October 1.

Torres told Marca on Tuesday: "After so much time waiting, it is the worst and most unexpected news that I could have heard this morning.

"I'm eager to go back. I don't know if it is definitive, I hope that a solution can be found.

"It is a shame that these incidents have forced the stadium to be closed, but if this is what happens then we have to accept it."
