Torres: Stevie would never leave Kop

Monday, March 16, 2009

Fernando Torres has warned Steven Gerrard’s many admirers that they have no chance of luring the England star away from Liverpool.

The Kop skipper has been linked with a summer switch to Real Madrid after his sensational performance against the Spanish giants in midweek.

Gerrard scored twice in midweek at Anfield as Liverpool thrashed Real 4-0, and his display even meant that Los Blancos supporters were singing the midfielder’s name at the end of the match.

But Torres, who played for Real's rivals Atlético Madrid, reckons Gerrard is going nowhere and that nothing could tempt him to leave Merseyside.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "There isn't a team in the world that Steven wouldn't get into - so yes, I am sure he has his admirers.

"But there are some players who love their club so much that they won't leave no matter what money is thrown around.

"We saw Kaka stay at AC Milan and that was nice to see in these times.

"Like Stevie, Kaká is one of the best players and in the same way he loves Milan, Stevie loves Liverpool.

"It's not about how we would get him to stay, he would never leave.

"The fans love him, the manager loves him, and he is our captain. Trust me when I say he is going nowhere."

French legend Zinedine Zidane recently said that he believed Gerrard could be the best player in the world, and Torres feels he may be right.

The Spaniard added: "He is the best player I have ever played with, and I have played with some great players with Spain and Liverpool.

"He could easily be the best player in the world.

"Great players can win the games on their own when the rest of the team are not playing well. Stevie can do that.

"It shows how special he is."
