Fernando Torres, who I think looks better in a dress personally, has warned Manchester United "You're Next" !!! It's good to see that he keeps a close eye on the fixture list and is aware of his next opponents.
The Liverpool ladyman scored the first goal as Rafa Benitez's side blasted into the quarter-finals of the Champions League last night. With confidence sky high at Anfield, Liverpool travel to Manchester United on Saturday where they will meet a team of a slightly higher calibre than that which I saw them play last night. In fact, Real Madrid were dreadful. Little wonder tehy have never managed to limp past the last 16 of the CL for the past 5 years..
Torres added: "We now have the belief for Saturday against United. That is a massive game. I hope to win that and have more chances in the league. We know it's very important to win there - if not they will be many points ahead. I am very proud. I am proud at the performance of the team and the performance of the fans. We knew the atmosphere would be amazing but it was even better than we thought. This was a big night for Liverpool and for English football as well. We showed Real Madrid that this is Anfield and that Liverpool can win against any team here. It was a fantastic performance. After the first goal they knew it would be difficult because they had to score two. The penalty finished the game."
"The plan before the game was to play with intensity and with a high-tempo. Spanish football has quality but it is slower, so we knew it would be difficult for them if we played with intensity. I think we prepared the game better than them. The boss was brilliant in explaining how to play against them."......Back To Home Page...
