Benitez Threatens To Quit If Torres Is Sold

Fernando Torres

Rafa Benitez has warned that he would quit Liverpool if striker Fernando Torres were sold.

The cash-strapped club owe an eye-watering £245million after the takeover by American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

Cashing in on star striker Torres would give the pair an escape route out of the financial mess but manager Benitez insists that he would walk out of Anfield if a deal was done behind his back.

Benitez told reporters that it will not happen and that he would quit if it happened. The manager added that he is confident it will never happen.

The 49-year-old Kop chief has come under-fire this season, with his side struggling both at home and in Europe but Benitez has hit back at his critics and reckons the Reds’ health is as rude as ever.

He added that there is a massive difference between five years ago and now and that the name of the club around the world is at the same level as it was in the 1980s.

He went on to say that it is a fantastic achievement and that everybody talks about Liverpool in a good way.

Benitez then confidently said that Liverpool will get better.
