Fernando Torres has backed the appointment of Roy Hodgson as Reds boss. Torres was glad to see Hodgson appointed as the new Liverpool manager and is looking forward to speaking with him. "I was happy Hodgson got the job. I haven't had a chat with him yet but I will talk with him soon and we will see his ideas about the future," he said. "For now, my future is here. South Africa and the World Cup is too important to think about things after that. "I have a very important week still here and after that I will have time to talk with him and talk about my future. "He did really well at Fulham and I am sure he can do better for Liverpool. He is a very good manager. He showed that in the past and in the last season with Fulham. "Hopefully he will be the right man to give Liverpool the opportunity to be strong again."
