Torres fitness latest

Rafa Benitez has revealed he will give Fernando Torres every chance of taking on Blackburn Rovers this weekend as the striker continues to step up his recuperation from a groin injury.

The 25-year-old has not figured for the Reds first-team since the Champions League clash with Lyon on November 4 following a problem sustained on international duty.

However, Torres is close to resuming full training with his teammates and Benitez will make a late decision before deciding whether to include the No.9 in his squad for the trip to Ewood Park.

"The feedback we had about Torres yesterday was very positive and he was feeling good," the boss told Liverpoolfc.tv.

"We will see how he is in the training session today, but it seems as though things are going well."

Asked whether the Spain international could face Rovers, Benitez replied: "It depends on how he feels during the week.

"He has to keep training with the fitness coach, but if he is feeling better maybe he can be involved in normal training sessions and afterwards we can decide."

Gil Marin commented: “We have had another opportunity to sell him and again we have said no.

“Aguero will leave Atletico when he wants to go, as happened with Fernando Torres.”

Ukrainian International Andriy Shevchenko Involved In Car Crash

According to reports from Ukraine, Dynamo Kiev striker Andriy Shevchenko was involved in a car accident on the streets of Kiev on Thursday afternoon.

The 33-year-old attacker crashed his Porsche into a Honda in the centre of Ukraine's capital. Neither of the parties involved in the crash sustained any serious injuries.

The former Milan star isn't the first well known footballer to get involved in a car crash this week. Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema drove his Audi into some barriers and then an oak tree close to his house following el Clasico.

Shevchenko will be relieved to have stepped away from the accident without any serious injuries. The experienced attacker recently returned to Kiev to relaunch his career.

He Made The People Happy

To mark the 50th anniversary of the start of his Liverpool reign, here's a compilation of some of Bill Shankly's finest quotes.

'Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.'

*****

'If you are first you are first. If you are second you are nothing.'

*****

'Liverpool was made for me and I was made for Liverpool.'

*****

'The trouble with referees is that they know the rules, but they don't know the game.'

*****

'Son, you'll do well here as long as you remember two things. Don't over-eat and don't lose your accent.' - to Ian St John when he signed for Liverpool.

*****

To a journalist who suggested Liverpool were struggling - 'Ay, here we are with problems at the top of the league.'

*****

'I know this is a sad occasion, but I think that Dixie would be amazed to know that even in death he could draw a bigger crowd to Goodison than Everton on a Saturday afternoon.' - speaking at the funeral of Everton legend Dixie Dean

HUGHES VS WENGER: THE WAR RAGES ON


If you saw the Carling Cup tie last night, you'd know that the real fight wasn't on the pitch but on the sidelines. Mark Hughes and Arsene Wenger were quarreling like little kids and unfortunately, the tension didn't level out.

Arsene Wenger refused to shake Mark Hughes' hand.

Hughes-"Maybe he's used to winning games and when he does lose sometimes he doesn't know how to behave."

Wenger's rebuttal- "I think I have nothing to say. I am free to shake hands with whom I want after the game."

Hughes continues- "At one point I was over on his side of the technical area and he seemed to be a bit aggrieved by that. But I think he is probably more aggrieved because he got beaten. I have been to the Emirates Stadium and been beaten 6-2 but I still offered my hand at the end. It is the least you can do. I am a little bit disappointed in that respect. You should be a bit more gracious than that because it is unnecessary. We all hurt when we get beaten, but you should always offer your hand."

When suggested in a post match interview that shaking one's hand is 'proffessional courtesy', Wenger replied sarcastically, "I have no professional courtesy."

CARLO ANCELOTTI DEFENDS LINE UP



Ancelotti's side lost last night's match after a fatal miss kick by 18 year old Gael Kakuta.

Ancelotti- "This is good for our season. I wanted to see our young players. I think they did a good job. It was a good opportunity to gain experience.

"We are disappointed but I think that we did a very good job with 10 versus 11 - we played with spirit, with heart," added Ancelotti. "I took a risk with three players coming on at half-time. It was a new line-up for us and sometimes it doesn't work, but in second half it was better. It was impossible for Kalou to come back on - he was injured. We need to assess him on Thursday but we hope he will recover quickly."

Do you think he made the right decision?
