Torres blast for Spanish clubs

16 Jun 2009 - 07:34:31

Fernando Torres has slammed Spanish clubs for shunning homegrown players in favour of more expensive foreign imports.

In a thinly-veiled attack on Real Madrid, the former Atletico Madrid striker has spoken of his dismay that Spanish players are ignored in favour of high-profile overseas signings.

Real are poised to complete the world record £80million transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United just days after agreeing to pay AC Milan £59million for Brazil star Kaka.

The Liverpool and Spain striker said: "In Spain we still don't value the players that we have.

"We have the best national team in the world and a lot of money would be spent on our players, but Spanish clubs don't do it.

"They would only do it for foreign players."
