Ah, you have to love this recent quote from new Liverpool winger Albert Riera. It seems like Rafa’s new man isn’t afraid to speak his mind, and that is definitely apparent after reading his current comments on Liverpool striker Fernando Torres!
Albert Riera has declared Liverpool pal Fernando Torres should win this year’s Ballon d’Or.
Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo is the favourite for the award, but winger Riera told Spanish journalists: “I am doing good things alongside Fernando Torres, who is a partner and a good friend. To me he should win the Ballon d’Or.” (Tribal Football)
One has to believe Riera is just sticking up for his start striker, right? After all, the award appears to already be signed, sealed and delivered to Manchester United’s Crisitano Ronaldo, who took the footballing world by storm last year. His skill and ability to change the role of an attacking midfielder most certainly makes him the odds on favourite.
Does Torres have a shot at the award? If not, then when do you expect him to win one?
