Liverpool striker Fernando Torres last night said the words every Kopite in the planet had been longing to hear: I'm staying.

The Kop idol's statement comes after months of speculation that he was considering leaving Anfield following Liverpool's failure to qualify for this season's Champions League.

However, after returning to training following his World Cup winning exploits, Torres insisted that his commitment to the Reds is the same as it was when he moved to Merseyside.

He told the club's official website: "This is the best club in the country so the targets and expectations are always high. Hopefully we can stay at our level.

"At Liverpool the aim is to fight for every title. It was difficult last season but we are sure we can improve this season.

"I am really happy to be back, really happy to stay with all my team-mates. My commitment and loyalty to the club and to the fans is the same as it was on my first day when I signed. I am looking forward to the challenge ahead."

When asked why Liverpool means so much to him, he replied: "From my first day I got the same welcome as Steven Gerrard or Jamie Carragher or players who have been here for a long time.

"I felt at home from the first day, I feel the fans love me and everyone knows I am really happy here and really happy to play at Anfield."
