Amid reports that Fernando Torres has become frustrated with life under Roy Hodgson, yesterday’s press conference comments by the Liverpool boss will have left fans unimpressed.
When asked about Torres being a target for United, instead of refuting the possibility Hodgson appeared to not rule the sale out.
“I’m pretty sure when a great player like Wayne Rooney is looking to leave his club, Manchester United will be in a position to target an awful lot of players around the world.
“They will have the opportunity to replace him with many star strikers around the world.”
“I don’t think Torres would be the only player they’ll be targeting or we’d be the only club worried their star is going to be a target.
“I’m not naive enough to think there is no danger we’ll ever lose Torres.”
“I can only hope we won’t. I’ll do everything in my power to keep him happy at the club.”
Roy Hodgson seems to be forgetting which club he is managing. You’re not at Fulham anymore. Ambition please.
Fernando Torres is one of 4 senior players who has not travelled to Italy for tonight’s game.
