Torres wants Reds situation explained

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has reaffirmed that he won’t be talking to anyone until after the World Cup finishes, amid speculation linking him with a move away from Anfield this summer.

The striker has a World Cup semi-final clash for Spain against Germany on Wednesday night to prepare for and insists he will discuss issues with Liverpool once his international duty is over.

He told El Mundo Deportivo,”I suppose that when the World Cup finishes I will speak to the people at Liverpool and they will explain to me the real situation of how things are at present, the future of the club. And I will talk to the new coach.

“There’s time for, but I want to finish the World Cup, go on holiday, as I haven’t had a holiday for three years, rest and then there will be time to talk about all of that – the situation isn’t going to change whether we talk soon or later.”

On Sunday, Torres said he was happy that the club appointed Roy Hodgson as Rafa Benitez’s successor.

“I was happy he (Hodgson) got the job. I haven’t had a chat with him yet but I will talk with him soon and we will see his ideas about the future,” he said.

Should Spain beat Germany on Wednesday night, they will face the winner of tonight’s semi-final between Holland and Uruguay on Sunday 11th July.
