The Spanish international is the main striker for the European champions, with Didier Drogba  playing in China, Daniel Sturridge out of favour and Romelu Lukaku out on loan at West Bromwich Albion.
But Torres gave yet another insight into the despair he felt on the bench last season as a red-hot Drogba kept him out of the side.
"I have done lots of things wrong. Last season, there was a moment when I lost the values I learned when I was a child," the Daily Mirror quoted Torres, as saying.
"I had many team-mates who didn't care about winning or losing if they didn't play. I didn't want to be like them, but there was a moment when I realised that I didn't care either," he added.
"I also realised I was not happy, as I was not the person I wanted to be. I sacrificed myself for the team, as it was the only way to play," he said.
