Fernando Torres returns to Liverpool


Liverpool fans were treated to a rare spectacle as former striker Fernando Torres returned to the club to spend a day learning from manager Jurgen Klopp.

Torres, who currently manages Atletico Madrid’s Under-19s, had the opportunity to shadow Klopp and assistant manager Pep Lijnders during their training session ahead of the Brighton match on Sunday.

Speaking to the club’s X (formerly Twitter) page, the 40-year-old expressed his admiration for Klopp and his staff and praised Liverpool’s growing facilities.

Torres said: “I have had the opportunity to see how everything works from the inside, which is great.

“I’m a big fan of Jurgen and his staff and all around the AXA training facility, which is very different than when I was here.

“So obviously the club grows a lot, and I have the chance to see why.”
