John W. Henry, the owner of Liverpool FC, appears to have taken a swipe at former star Fernando Torres following his Anfield departure.
The American businessman, who bought Liverpool last year from compatriots George Gillett and Tom Hicks, was responding to comments rumoured to be made by the Spaniard.
Henry said: “Someone was saying that people weren’t happy here. But I think since that person left people are happier.”
Since signing for Chelsea on transfer deadline day in January, £50 million man Torres has failed to hit the back of the net in seven appearances.
Meanwhile, Liverpool new boy Luis Suarez has settled in straight away on Merseyside since signing from Ajax for £23 million.
The Uruguayan has netted twice for Liverpool and played a hand in three further goals in his first five appearances – including the second in the Reds’ 2-0 win at Sunderland yesterday.
