Torres calls Liverpool FC a phenomenon and dreams of winning the Premiership next season

In an interview in today’s Independent, Fernando Torres has described Liverpool Football Club as a ‘phenomenon’ as he aims to help the Reds wrestle the Premiership title away from Manchester United next season. The Spanish marvel nicknamed El Niño who scored an 11-minute hat-trick against New Zealand in the Confederations Cup yesterday, revealed:

"They say foreign players don't care as much as the home-grown, but we are very much aware that Liverpool haven't won the Premier League for 19 years and understand the supporters are desperate for us to put that right," he said. “The rivalry with Manchester United is intense and the roof will come off at Anfield if we beat them to next year's title. Obviously the Champions League means a lot to Liverpool, but the English title is the one everyone wants in our dressing room."

Torres added "Liverpool Football Club is a phenomenon, with millions of fans who totally identify with everything the club stands for."

"They are at one with the players and that's why we get the backing at Anfield. This club has it all: the history, the prestige, the fans, the organisation. It's a big responsibility to give the fans here the success they desire, but the challenge is always exhilarating and this is why I was delighted to sign a new contract.”

"Now we need to win the big trophies and we can trust Rafa Benitez to keep the momentum going for us. He is a great manager and has helped me improve so much in my time at Liverpool."
