Hodgson expects Torres stay

27 July 2010 04:52
New Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson remains confident that star striker Fernando Torres will still be a Reds player next season. The 26-year-old Spain international continues to be heavily linked with a move away from Anfield, but Hodgson has faith that Torres is going nowhere. He told reporters: "As far as I know he is looking forward to coming back here - he is back on Monday. "He is enjoying a holiday - a well-deserved break as he has not had one for three years. "He is spending a lot of time with his family, keeping a low profile and as far as I know he is not really speaking to anyone. "But he has told us that he is looking forward to Monday, looking forward to getting back to work and looking forward to playing for Liverpool next season. "That is what I know, so other reports, I would suggest, are erroneous."
