Though he came on as a sub in the thrilling Champions League penalty shootout triumph over Bayern Munich, he was furious at being ignored as one of the penalty-takers.
Torres could not hide his anger afterwards and complained about his treatment during the season.
But he is backtracking now and trying to look forward and be positive.
He said: “I didn’t say that really. I have always felt part of the club.
“Things change and you could see this season that I’ve been the main striker, then Demba came to the club.
“I feel better at the moment but it may be because I’ve been rested more since Demba arrived.
“Normally, at this time of the season I feel tired but it’s not been the case as we’ve both been rested."
