Torres finally unveiled at Anfield

July 4 2007

Fernando Torres has been unveiled as a Liverpool player in a £20 million, 6 year deal. After giving a farewell press conference to the Atletico Madrid fans he flew to Liverpool’s John Lennon airport and on to Anfield for another press conference, this time a welcoming one.

He’ll wear the number 9 shirt vacated by Robbie Fowler and previously distinguished by the likes of Ian Rush and Roger Hunt.

A delighted Rafa Benitez says:

 “Atletico Madrid had better offers and the player had better offers.

“But he always wanted to join Liverpool. That was the key for me.

“We needed to work hard because there were other clubs who wanted him that we knew about - other clubs offering more money.

“But the player said straight away ‘I want to join Liverpool’. He said we were his first choice "


“He has taken a pay cut to come here. Okay he is still on a very good contract because he is a top player. But to be a successful club you need players with passion and Fernando has passion.”

Didn't take much begging ta get him here, I think he would have swam & walked under his own steam ta play for us in what iv'e read so far.

I think we have that in Pennant carra, he's pretty devastating on his runs, when he gets going. Not as good as Digger I might add though.

Pennant isn't World Class imo not international class Harry Kewell on the other hand is a PL Legend and Liverpool will buy a WC winger I reckon Daniel Alves

I disagree Dick. Pennant is certainly nowhere near world class but his second half of last season showed him far better than what England have in that position, so for me, most definitely International class, although I couldn't care less if Maclaren doesn't pick him other than for the players confidence.

A fit Kewell makes a great difference to our team under Rafa and I'd love to see him play a full season on the left wing.

We need a winger who can play left or right tbh, that way we'll have cover for both wings although Rafa said today that he's looking for winger(s) plural so who knows who'll be here and who will go.
