Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says that the petulance and attitude shown by West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet reminds him of the days with Fernando Torres.
The Spaniard was regarded as one of the best players at Liverpool, and he was a huge fear amongst fans. However, just six months after winning the World Cup title with Spain, he decided to move away from Anfield. A £ 50 million move to Chelsea in January 2011 followed, but it was against the wishes and love of everyone concerned with Liverpool. Carragher, who was still playing, says that Torres’ behaviour upset a number of his teammates.
