Fernando Torres has learnt the Liverpool way well: You’ll Never Walk Alone. While Rafa Benitez’s men are certainly walking through a atorm, the Spainaird has come out to defend his manager, saying that sacking him is not the solution.
“I think sacking the manager is not a solution,” Torres said. “The manager is not playing so we have to be positive with him, try to work with him.
“We are the main reason, the players are the people that have to find a solution to the situation. The manager is not playing, so we have to play much better.”
He also said that it was unfortunate that Liverpool lack funds: “It’s a difficult situation but every top team in the world goes sometimes through a bad situation like Liverpool now.
He showed that he was indeed a Red: “Like every top team in the world, Liverpool will get over the situation.
“I have confidence in myself and my team. I know we are good enough.”
Wenger has suggested that Van Persie could miss the whole season beacause of that ankle injury.
He told the Official Site: “If you are very positive you would say [he’ll be back in] April. If you’re a bit cautious you say May. It is virtually the rest of the season.”
This news also comes as a blow for Holland. Van Persie will be anxious to make a full recovery before the World Cup in order to play.
With The Dutchman sidelined, the manager also said that he has no problem signing a player that is cup tied in the January transfer window, in order to replace him.
After allegations that John Terry organized a £10,000 tour of the Chelsea grounds, the Blues and England captain John Terry is being questioned (yet again) over his professional judgement. It has emmerged that he used his position as an international captain to vote for his Chelsea pals. He chose Blues striker Didier Brogba as his no.1 (okay maybe thats understandable) and felt that Michael Ballack was the second best player in the World! If you’re not sure how the FIFA World PLayer is chosen, well team captains and managers from over 147 countries vote for their top 3 players. The voters are not allowed to vote for their countrymen but are free to vote for club team mates. Others that voted for Michael Ballack were: the captain of Saudi Arabia, the Namibia manager, and both the skipper and managers of Samoa and Sri Lanka. Along with Terry’s vote, Ballack amassed 27 points, a long way from Messi’s 1073 points. The Argentine failed to make the cut for JT.
