WATCH: A Trip Down Fernando Torres Memory Lane

On this day in 2007, Liverpool completed one of their best ever signings in club history. The Reds bought Spanish sensation Fernando Torres from Atletico Madrid for £20 million, which at that time was a lot of money.

Torres would go on to light the Premier League ablaze and become one of, if not the best, strikers in the world for a short period of time. I'm admittedly not even a Liverpool fan, but watching him score goals at Anfield and all over England will go down as one of my favorite moments as a football fan. I appreciate world-class players and he was truly that at the top of his game with Liverpool.

Unfortunately he left a bad taste in many supporters' mouths with his transfer to Chelsea. Hopefully after five-plus years the bitterness has subsided and we can reflect on all the amazing moments Torres provided for the club. Here's a great video of all the goals he scored at Liverpool. If it's too early and you still hate him, I apologize. Find me on Twitter and send me hate tweets if it's that unacceptable. But I can't hide my love for him any longer.
