Liverpool owners told to spend big by frustrated Fernando Torres

Walking through a storm; Fernando Torres insists Liverpool's owners need to add to the squad to see improvements on the pitch

Liverpool are out of the Champions League and effectively out of the Premier League title race. Wednesday’s FA Cup third round replay defeat to Reading has left them with just the Europa League trophy to chase.

And Torres wants the club’s American co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett to back his fellow Spaniard and manager Rafael Benítez.

Torres said: “It’s frustrating. We finished second last season. This season should have been a turning point for us – a chance to do something great.

“Manchester United sold Carlos Tévez and Cristiano Ronaldo, while Chelsea didn’t sign anyone. But it hasn’t been. It’s now the owners’ turn. They have to sign players so that this does not happen again.

“If we want to compete with United and Chelsea we need a much, much more complete squad. We need more genuinely first-class players and we can’t let our best players leave.”

Torres, currently out with a knee injury, told Four-Four-Two magazine: “We didn’t want to win the Europa League at the start of the season but it’s a reality now.

“Now we have to win it. Anything less than winning the tournament would be terrible. We need to improve, we need to take responsibility and we need to get into the top four and win something.

“We have virtually no chance of winning the title now. Now we need to make the best of this situation.”
