Fernando Torres proud to play for Liverpool
18 August 2009 @ 22:39

Liverpool forward Fernando Torres said he was delighted to play for the club and vowed to improve his game.

"I'm very proud because when I came from Atletico I just wanted to play some games and see if I could play in a top team like Liverpool," Torres told the club's official website.

"Now two years later I think I am improving a lot, and I think I can improve a lot yet. I am still young, just 25."

The Spanish forward gave his reaction to signing a contract that ties him to Liverpool until at least 2013, with an optional year on top.

"I'm really happy. I hope I have a lot of seasons to play here," said the striker.

"I'm happy because I went right from Atletico, I had never played in the Champions League before, and Liverpool gave me the opportunity to play against the best teams in the world.

"I am really happy to sign a new contract with Liverpool and I hope I can sign more contracts in the future here.

"I feel good because the fans are fantastic with me. Every week it is amazing to see all the fans singing my name and my song. I am very proud to play for Liverpool," he continued.

"It is one of the most important clubs in Europe; the club with the best fans in the world, I am sure about that; and one of the clubs with the most history in modern football."

Looking forward to Liverpool's next Premier League game against Stoke City, Torres said he was expecting a tough game.

"We know them, we know last season we played against them and it was really difficult," El Nino said.

"We couldn't win against them, so we are waiting for a very defensive team. They will try to score from set pieces or from a long ball, but we have to be offensive and go from the first minute until the end to try to score. And if we can score in the first minute I am sure we can win."

Torres admitted the game against Stoke was the perfect opportunity to forget about the opening game of the season, which his side lost 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur.

"The best thing when you lose is having a game three days later because we have the chance to forget about Tottenham," he explained.

"It is disappointing when you cannot win, but I think we have to improve, we have to be positive. We can get three points and we are on our way."
