Torres wants Euro glory even more than Premier League titleApril 7th, 2009 - 1:57 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 7 (ANI): Fernando Torres wants Euro glory even more than a Premier League winner’s medal.
Most Liverpool players are desperate to end their 19-year domestic title drought, but Spanish striker Torres said: “Domestic titles are very important but to win the Champions League you are saying ‘we are the best team in Europe’.
“This club has a great record in the European Cup, but now I want to be a part of that history,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
The Reds, who face Chelsea in tomorrow’s quarterfinal, have lifted Europe’s top pot five times.
Torres, who tasted Euro 2008 success with Spain, added: “Winning the European Championship was a great thing for me and I understood what it was to win a major trophy and what I had been missing.
“On the way home from the European Championship I made a promise that I wanted more of this success with Liverpool and it does not come any bigger than the European Cup,” he said. (ANI)
