Torres equals Hunt record

05 May 2008 - 11:30:41

Liverpool's star striker Fernando Torres was proud of having equalled Roger Hunt's club record of having scored in eight successive home league games in the 1-0 win over Manchester City.

The 24-year-old Spain international has netted 32 goals in all competitions in his first season with the Reds and has scored in his last eight outings in the league at Anfield, equalling Hunt's record from the 1961-62 campaign.

Torres told the club's official website: "I'm very proud. I knew about the record before the game and I am pleased to have scored again.

"Now I will try to do even better next season.

"The first season is normally always difficult but it has been made easy for me by my team-mates. It's thanks to them that I can keep scoring and keep improving."

Reds manager Rafa Benitez added his own tribute, commenting: "It was another good game from us and another fine goal from Fernando.

"I believe he will score more, which will be a great benefit for the club, for him and for the fans."
