Rafa signals Bellamy exit

05 Jul 2007 - 08:20:44

Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy could be heading for an Anfield exit after the Reds completed a club record move for Atletico Madrid's Fernando Torres.

The 23-year-old Spain international has penned a six-year contract and Reds boss Rafa Benitez has hinted that that could spell the end for Bellamy on Merseyside.

He commented: "Possibly. We have some clubs asking about him and it's a possibility.

"The only thing I can say is that Peter Crouch will be staying with us. I have said to Crouch that he must fight for his position and he will stay with us."

Meanwhile, Benitez has backed compatriot Torres to be a success at Anfield and not struggle to adapt as Fernando Morientes did two seasons ago.

He added: "Fernando was playing in the first division at 17-years-old and I think he can manage the pressure.

"He has power, pace, is good in the air, scores goals, can dribble and do a lot of things. The kind of striker he is different to the other strikers we have at the moment.

"He is different to Morientes. He is quicker and stronger.

"Morientes had other skills and was a very good finisher, but Torres can run behind defenders, can play in the wide areas or play between the lines to receive the ball."
