Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has requested talks with the club’s board to clear up the growing uncertainty surrounding his Anfield future.
Torres’ has found himself linked with big-money moves to most of Liverpool’s Premier League rivals over the past few weeks, but has refused to comment on whether the speculation until after his involvement in the World Cup comes to an end.
The 26-year-old forward plans to meet with the Liverpool heirachy and newly-appointed manager Roy Hodgson in the coming weeks to ascertain exactly what is going on at the club.
Torres told El Mundo Deportivo;
“I suppose that when the World Cup finishes I will speak to the people at Liverpool and they will explain to me the real situation of how things are at present, the future of the club. And I will talk to the new coach.
There’s time for that, but I want to finish the World Cup, go on holiday, as I haven’t had a holiday for three years, rest and then there will be time to talk about all of that – the situation isn’t going to change whether we talk soon or later.”
Eeep. It’s still a little ‘non-commital’ ain’t it?
