Torres feels something special is happening

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres is upbeat about Liverpool’s future, insisting there is lots of faith and confidence that manager Rafa Benitez is leading the club in the right direction.

“I believe we are on the verge of something special here and I am delighted to commit my future to this club,” he said.

The Reds finished narrowly behind Manchester Utd in the Premier League title race last season and Torres believes everything will be done this summer to ensure the team can take their title aspirations all the way next time round.

He 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.”
