Fernando Will Tear Clubs Apart – Rafa Benitez
Rafa Benitez fired out a chilling warning after Fernando Torres’ latest goal rush.
The Liverpool boss saw his strike king demolish Hull with a brilliant hat-trick.
Torres has now scored five goals in the last two games. But incredibly, Benitez reckons Torres is yet to hit top form.
He said: “In the last three games he was really good, he is improving his mentality, work-rate and movement and he is now showing his ability but I think he can do it better.
“The main thing is the mentality of the player. He is keen to learn and he will improve but how much depends on him.”
Torres, 25, joined the Reds in a megabucks move two seasons ago. And Benitez is chuffed that the investment is proving to be sound.
He added: “If you think about the money we were spending on players we then decided to spend £20million on Torres – that was a massive figure for us.
“We decided to bring him here because of his quality but also his potential and the future he had.
“We had a lot of confidence he would get better and we are pleased now but he can improve.”
