Meireles completed a reported £12 million move to Stamford Bridge in the final minutes of transfer deadline day almost two weeks ago, a switch that angered many Liverpool supporters.
The 28-year-old revealed upon signing for Chelsea that he had never wanted to leave Anfield and that he would eventually explain why he had done so.
He attempted to set the record straight during his first press conference with his new club after being officially unveiled as a Chelsea player, appearing to give credence to rumours he was promised a 100 per cent pay rise at Liverpool if he impressed during what was his debut season.
''All I have to say is that I had one promise at Liverpool which wasn't fulfilled,'' said the midfielder, who lived up to his side of the bargain after joining the club from Porto.
''It's not the only thing to blame. But that's why the Liverpool fans are unsure why I left.'Source<> The Telegraph
