New AC Milan striker, Fernando Torres, has insisted that he had a good relationship with his former coach, Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.
Torres, who joined the Italian club on a two-year loan deal, spoke to the press during his unveiling at the San Siro.
"I thank Liverpool and Chelsea for everything they gave me, but I felt it was the right moment to change," he said as quoted by ESPN in Milan on Tuesday.
"When the chance to join Milan presented itself, I accepted and I am looking to score lots of goals again. I needed a new challenge.”
“I hope to spend many years at Milan, full of success and trophies. I am very happy."
Then, when quizzed about his relationship with Jose Mourinho, who regularly criticized his strike force last season, Torres went on to speak positively about his relationship with the Portuguese coach.
"I had a very good relationship with Jose," the Spaniard said.
"When I was signed by Milan he wished me all the best. He spoke about the passion that the city of Milan has for football and that I would settle in well. I learnt a lot from him as a coach. Perhaps in the future our paths will meet again.
"I thank Mourinho for his words. I don't need to say anything else. We have to always act and play as professionals."
Torres concluded the interview by stating that he hopes to repeat his goalscoring success at Liverpool and Atletico Madrid and his trophy haul at Chelsea.
"I've played in three different teams," he added.
"I won more with Chelsea but scored more goals with my other two clubs. Milan is a new adventure for me. I cannot wait to score for the fans and win titles.
"It's important to both myself and Milan to rediscover my form and help Milan get back to the highest levels."
Fernando Torres won the FA Cup, The Champions League and the Europa League during his time at Chelsea and scored 81 times in 142 appearances when he played for Liverpool between 2007 and 2011.
