Andriy Voronin doesn’t appear to be sticking to the script. The free transfer showed the £26 million Torres and the watching Rafa Benitez that he has no intention of sitting on the Anfield bench.
The reds won 3-2 against one of Germany’s best sides tonight in the most intriguing pre-season game to date.
Andriy Voronin scored twice and was a menace during his time on the pitch. Fernando Torres came on to replace him and had a solid debut – coming close twice to opening his Liverpool account. Good news for reds fans is that Momo Sissoko is starting to find his feet against better opposition.
Liverpool will take heart from this performance and the reds will face Djibril Cisse’s old club, Auxerre, on Friday night.
