Torres: I didn’t come to pass the time

News

Torres, who joined on loan from Premier League outfit Chelsea at the start of the season, has scored just once in his six appearances so far for the Rossoneri, but insists he is improving on a daily basis.

“Personally, I’m feeling better every day,” he told Radio Onda Cero. “I’m adapting to a new League. This week we are playing three games and the Coach said that he would have needed everybody and in this game I had to start from the bench.

“This is part and parcel of the challenge though because I haven’t come here just to pass the time, but because I want to leave my mark.

“I’m proud of what I’ve achieved in Spain and in England in my career and I’d like things to go likewise in Italy too.”

The former Atletico Madrid and Liverpool frontman then compared his experiences in Italy so far to that of playing in Spain and England.

“It’s difficult to say which league among La Liga, Premier League and Serie A is the best – I think that all of them have their own advantages and disadvantages,” he said.

“But in terms of organisation and selling power, the English League certainly is vastly superior to both Spain and Italy. They know how to organise things well for the fans.”

The 30-year-old then revealed his ambition to return to the Spanish national team, having been excluded for their recent Euro 2016 qualifiers.

“The national team has given me everything and I’d always like to come back and win again,” he said.

“I always want to win and see the country united one more time, but at the moment this can be achieved only through doing well at Milan.”

Torres will be hoping to be in action on Wednesday night following his weekend substitute appearance as Milan face Cagliari in their next Serie A fixture.
