Fernando Torres: Mario Balotelli was important here, I wish him luck


New Milan striker Fernando Torres was full of gratitude for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho after he arrived in Italy.

The 30-year-old starts a new experience in Italy after a disappointing spell at Stamford Bridge but was grateful to the Portuguese manager for helping him improve his game.

"I learned so much with him, maybe in the future our paths can meet in again," Torres said at his unveiling in Italy.

"When I told him about AC Milan he wished me good luck.

"He talked to me about the passion there is here [in Milan]. I wish him the best as he did with me."

The Spaniard will replace Mario Balotelli in Milan's offensive department after the Italian joined Liverpool, Torres' first club in England.

"Balotelli? He was important here, I wish him good luck for his new experience with Liverpool."
