Liverpool striker Fernando Torres admits he hopes to one day return to former club Atletico Madrid.

"It was a very difficult decision to leave," said Torres, "but it was the right choice. After 11 years, I needed a new professional challenge.

"I hope one day the circumstances will be right so I can return. But for now, I am living in the present and that is with Liverpool, where I want to spend, at least, the next six years."
