    Liverpool Striker Fernando Torres Set For Fresh Lay-Off

    Post by Ali Swaidan on Thu Feb 26, 2009 9:29 pm

    Having limped off in the Bernabeu, it looks as though Liverpool hitman Fernando Torres will spend yet more time on the sidelines.
    Wednesday night's Champions League clash between the Reds and Real Madrid had been eagerly anticipated, with Spain's Euro 2008 hero Torres and 'Pool skipper Steven Gerrard expected to give los Blancos headaches.
    However, ‘El Nino’ struggled early on and ended up limping off on the hour mark, replaced by Ryan Babel. Gerrard, meanwhile, started on the bench and only saw a few minutes of action. Nevertheless, Liverpool were still able to snatch a monumental away goal thanks to Yossi Benayoun, who headed them to a 1-0 first leg victory.
    However, it looks to have come at a price, with Torres set for another stint in the treatment room due to an ankle problem. His season has been ruined by hamstring injuries and a fresh complaint is the last thing he needs.
    After the game, boss Rafael Benitez told the press, "With Torres, we don't know. He will probably miss some games.
    "We have a game in three days' time [at Middlesbrough] so it will be difficult for him to be ready."
