Tuesday was a great day for Liverpool fans.
Alongside rumours that mysterious Chinese businessman Kenny Huang could be about to buy the Reds for terrible twosome Tom Hicks and George Gillett, on a far more important and concrete footing Spanish talisman Fernando Torres finally spoke into the camera to publicly commit himself to the Merseysiders.
Torres: “I know that one trophy here at Liverpool â€“ maybe the Premier League â€“ means more than three or four with another club. This was my target from the day I came and it’s still my target. My commitment and loyalty to the club and to the fans is the same as it was on my first day when I signed. From my first day I got the same welcome as Stevie [Gerrard] or Carra [Jamie Carragher] and the other players who have been here for a long time. I felt at home from the first day. I feel the fans love me and everyone knows I am really happy here and really happy to play at Anfield. I’m looking forward to starting the season.”
Torres was also questioned on the arrival of Joe Cole to Liverpool, to which the World Cup winner added “I think Joe is exactly the kind of player we need to improve the history of our club. He is the kind of player I like to play with and who can take the team to a higher level.”
