Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says that if the club were forced to sell Fernando Torres, he’d walk out of the Anfield hot seat.

The quotes come amid far fetched speculation that the state of the club’s finances could lead to the sale of top players such as Torres and captain Steven Gerrard.

Benitez said, “I’m confident it will never happen – if it did, I’d resign.

“When we have spent big, normally it’s been very good business. Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, Pepe Reina, Xabi Alonso. Robbie Keane is a good player but we had to sell him because he was not playing at the level we knew he could play.

“With the fringe players, we needed to take a gamble on Bosmans and one, two million-pound players. Some of these players have not been good enough for us. It is a risk you have to accept when there is not too much money about.”
