Nampaknya akhir-akhir ini Fernando Torres (red, FT9) mulai curhat masalah pribadinya semenjak mulai aktif mencetak gol buat Chelsea. Mulai dari pengalaman sebelumnya yang sering jadi cadangan, perasaan tidak peduli menang atau kalah karena tidak ikut main, sampai titik dimana dia sekarang mulai jadi pilihan utama karena lebih self-critical dan merasa di comfort zone.

Namun yang membuat saya tertarik justru pada saat dia curhat masa lalu saat dia masih berseragam Liverpool. Kata-kata yang paling menarik perhatian adalah bagaimana dia merasa sangat berhutang budi kepada Liverpool dan bahwa kebenaran suatu saat akan datang mengenai kepindahannya ke Chelsea. Dimana saat-saat momen tersebut merupakan hal yang paling menyakitkan bagi para Liverpudlians yang merasa dikhianati dan ditinggalkan, karena menganggap FT9 akan menjadi legenda Liverpool suatu saat nanti tapi ternyata dia malah lebih memilih untuk pergi.

Well, saya bukan penggemar berat FT9 atau juga bukan membela sikap yang ingin dia ungkapkan. Yang pasti I’m one of Liverpudlians who don’t like to have trust betrayed, and if the truth is different than the happening now, then I must forgive him.

Berikut kata-kata FT9 yang saya kutip dari dailymail.co.uk:

‘I owe Liverpool a huge amount,’ he said. ‘To the people, to the men in charge, to Benítez and his staff, to the city. Liverpool is a fundamental part of my life. They don’t remember me that way, but time will change that.

‘I could not have chosen a better place to go when I left Atlético. The other day when the news broke about Hillsborough, I felt emotional. I have experienced that, I know what the people have been through, I have seen them cry. I’ve lived that, I made it mine. This has arrived too late but it’s another step [in the right direction]. And it is things like that that playing for Liverpool gives you: it’s a feeling.

‘I decided to leave because I had to take a step forwards. It wasn’t the best way to have gone but nor were things exactly as they were sold [to people]. One day the truth will come out. In a sporting sense, nothing was happening; a new project was needed. We talked about that – about growth.

‘My son is a Liverpool fan and he was already kicking a ball before he was one. He was born in the football city; he had no choice.’
