Torres believes Liverpool are on the verge of 'something special'

Fernando Torres has admitted it was easy to sign a new deal at Liverpool because he believes the club is on the verge of 'something special'. Speaking to the official site Torres proclaimed: "There is nowhere else in Europe I want to be."

"I believe we are on the verge of something special here and I am delighted to commit my future to this club."

And Torres added: "You would not get top players signing new contracts if they did not think there were good times ahead. I expect many trophies for Liverpool in the years to come. The manager will know what he wants and what areas he wants to improve next season, and whatever he decides we know it will be the right choice because all the players and staff here have total trust in him. Our aim has to be the best. If we have no desire to be the best in England and in Europe then there is no point even turning up for work. I don't say it lightly, but we must think we can be as good or even better than (Champions League winners) Barcelona. It's the belief of everybody at this club that we can become the best and I think we have really moved forward in the last two seasons. Liverpool are just as famous as Barcelona as a football club and even more famous trophy-wise. But we want to make Liverpool as successful in this era as they were in the 70s and 80s."

Speaking about this seasons title race Torres added: “We came very close this season, and next season, with the experience we now have, we know we can go one better," said the Spain international. "Manchester United are very strong but we will improve and will have more about us next year. We were unlucky with injuries this season. I am not making excuses but things could have been different. The manager is building and I expect many trophies for Liverpool in the years to come. Winning Euro 2008 with Spain was amazing and it made me understand how good the feeling of winning is. It has made me even more hungry for FA Cups, Premier League titles, European Cups - I want them all. And I want to win them all with Liverpool."

Fernando Torres has been an absolute magician for the Reds since he joined in 2007 and it is a great shame that he did not play a bigger part this season. He is the type of explosive player that strikes fear into the hearts of opposing teams and brings Liverpool fans the kind of youthful joy only experienced whilst watching the games greats. The ocean-atmosphere phenomenon named El Niño that comes from the Spanish for "the little boy," refers to the Christ child, because the phenomenon is usually noticed around Christmas time. Torres’ contract extension will bring many Christmas gifts to Liverpool fans for years to come.
