Liverpool supporters marched before the game and sang constantly throughout it in support of the manager and the reds boss has paid special mention to the fans in his post match comments:
“I want to say thank you to our supporters because I think that they were as always magnificent,” said Benitez.
“The most important thing is the team so I say thank you for the support. To the players it was important as I said before the game and it was also for me, so I say a thank you, a big thank you.”
After Torres’ missed chances on Saturday, Benitez was pleased to see his record signing back amongst the goals:
“For me it doesn’t matter the price.”
“Sometimes people say you spent this money, but Voronin was a Bosman transfer and he has been really good so it is not important the money.
“Torres is a player who can score goals. He missed three or four chances the other day against Newcastle but today he scored and sometimes this is how it happens.”
