Liedson until the bitter end

Tears and goals at the Alvalade as Naval hold Sporting

An emotional night in Lisbon saw Liedson score his 172nd and 173rd goals for Sporting in his final match for the Lions, but it was not enough to earn victory as an enterprising Naval team grabbed a deserved 3-3 draw. The night ended with a tearful Liedson speaking to the crowd and being given a heartfelt standing ovation by his adoring public, many of whom were also bathed in tears as they watched Levezinho walk off the Alvalade pitch for the last time.

What do turtles and Torres have in common = Carra Hatin'


I think people must have lost their minds: most of us (I hope) are trying to either put the whole Torres transfer behind them - or are already busying buying every single one of Chelsea's new no.9 shirts, in every color, shape, and size. XD

However, today I read the most WTF quote 'allegedly' made by Torres, that someone put on Tumblr.
And I want to get to the bottom of it.

According to Torres: 'I Was isolated at Liverpool. Carra found out I like turtles and he hated me for it. Everyday he kicked me for my turtle love. It got too much for me and I had to leave'.

Can anyone shed some light?

UPDATE:

Found a link to the interviews (I think these are it) please someone let me know if they aren't.
Here's the link: http://www.ondacero.es/OndaCero/Reina-Torres-juntos/2038671_38

Is there someone that speaks spanish that could translate?? Please??
