Torres upset by financial troubles

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres is blaming the club’s financial problems for their inability to succeed on the pitch.

As the Reds’ problems off the field continue with co-owner George Gillett thought to be looking to sell his 50% share in the club, Torres believes not having the funds to buy the best players in the world will delay Liverpool’s Premier League ambitions.

He said, “Obviously we need players. If we can bring quality players it should be really positive for us.

“But I think the situation is really difficult because I think we don’t have money to bring in the best players.

“It’s a difficult situation but every top team in the world goes sometimes through a bad situation like Liverpool now.

“Like every top team in the world, Liverpool will get over the situation.

“I have confidence in myself and my team. I know we are good enough. We were playing really well last season with the same team.”
