The S*n brings us news of Liverpool manager Rafa B’s shrill whining over the fact that the one player he cannot do without – Fernando T – could well be injured.
Torres limped off nursing a hamstring injury playing for Spain against Belgium leaving the Spaniard definitely out for Wigan, probably out against Atletico Madrid, and possibly facing missing the Chelsea game a few days later as well. All this has left Rafa B with a sizzling chinbeard and smoke coming out his lugholes. The irate Spaniard said:
“I’m very disappointed. It now looks like we will lose Fernando for three very important games. Initial reports say he is likely to be out for around 10 days.
“There are too many international matches and the demands on the players are too much. Someone must analyse this. It is putting the players at risk of injury.”
Just how big of a miss would Torres be for the next three games?
