Villa backs Torres switch

Spain striker David Villa has backed international team-mate Fernando Torres' decision to leave Liverpool and join Chelsea in a £50 million deal.

Torres: Reds surprised us
Ancelotti defends Torres debut
Carra: We're over Torres

Torres did not enjoy a happy debut for the Blues, being substituted against his old club in the second half just before the Reds grabbed the only goal of the game through Raul Meireles.

However, Barcelona star Villa believes Torres made the right decision to quit Anfield for Chelsea.

He told Betfair: "Liverpool are not enjoying a good year. I am totally convinced that his move to Chelsea will go well and he will succeed in London.

"It's been very difficult for him, but I'm pleased because I know he wanted to go there. He is very happy and I wish him well."

World Cup winner Villa also said Andy Carroll, who Liverpool signed to replace Torres in a £35million deal, was "worth every penny".

Villa, who cost Barca around £34.2 million when he joined them from Valencia last summer, added: "Each year there are big transfers of this type. It's normal. All teams need to strengthen when they want to win things.

"Liverpool needed to reinforce after the sale of Fernando. They (Carroll and fellow new recruit Luis Suarez) are two great players who are worth every penny. I'm sure they'll be a hit with the fans."
