Hello Red friends,
Since many days, news about our club and players seem to be better and better. We don’t know yet if it’s a chinese or someone else who will kick yanks out of Anfield, but a very wonderful new just happened today: we were all waiting to read and hear that. Mi casa es tu casa Nando !
Enjoy, all is said:
“Liverpool’s Fernando Torres has told the club’s official website Liverpoolfc.tv that he wants to stay at Anfield:
We know it’s hard work early in pre-season, but are you enjoying being back around your teammates again?
“Of course. After a nice break enjoying the summer with my family I was looking forward to coming back to Melwood to see the staff, my teammates and the new players. I’m excited about the new season and about the targets of the club.”
We obviously have a new manager now who you met in Spain. How impressed are you with Roy Hodgson’s plans for the club and how much are you looking forward to working with him?
“I really appreciated the fact that Roy came out to see me while I was on my holidays. He told me about his plans for the club and what he wanted from me and I appreciated that. I hope he will be the right man to reach the targets of Liverpool Football Club and I am really looking forward to working with him. At the moment I am training just on my own but as soon as I can I will train with the team and with the new manager.”
Steven Gerrard has already said he is looking forward to the new season, Joe Cole has arrived and made his debut at the weekend – how excited are you about the future here at Liverpool?
“I was talking to Stevie a lot today and I also met with Joe. I think Joe is exactly the kind of player we need to improve the history of our club. We are keeping our best players and so it’s nice to be back with them. Hopefully we can play together as soon as possible.”
What are your personal targets this season and what do you think Liverpool can achieve?
“This is the best club in the country so the targets and expectations are always high. Hopefully we can stay at our level. At Liverpool the aim is to fight for every title. It was difficult last season but we are sure we can improve this season. I am really happy to be back, really happy to stay with all my teammates. My commitment and loyalty to the club and to the fans is the same as it was on my first day when I signed. I am looking forward to the challenge ahead.”
Why does this club mean so much to you?
“From my first day I got the same welcome as Stevie or Carra or 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. As I said earlier, I’m looking forward to starting the season and playing with my teammates and for the fans.”
Is the dream to score the goals which wins trophies for this club?
“Of course. I know that one trophy here at Liverpool – maybe the Premier League – means more than three or four with another club. This was my target from the day I came and it’s still my target. Hopefully this season we can feel this sensation here at Liverpool.”
Fernando Torres, Liverpool’s number 9 !! Nana nana nana nana, nana !
