Fernando José Torres Sanz (born 20 March 1984) is a Spanish fooller who played for Liverpool for three and a half seasons between 2007-2011. During that time he scored 65 league goals in 102 appearances. In his first season he became the first player since Robbie Fowler to score more than 20 league goals in their first season. He left Liverpool in 2011, joining Premier League rivals Chelsea for a record £50,000,000.

Liverpool careerEdit

Liverpool signed Torres from Atletico Madrid for a record fee of £20 million on a six year contract. He was handed the number 9 shirt previously worn by other Liverpool legends such as Ian Rush and Robbie Fowler. When asked about the significance of the number he said, "The fact that Liverpool are giving me the number nine jersey just goes to show the confidence they have placed in me, when considering those who have worn that shirt before me,".

He made his league debut for Liverpool on 11 August 2007 against Aston Villa in a 2–1 win. His first goal for Liverpool came in the 1-1 tie to Chelsea on 19 August 2007. Torres booked his first hat trick against Reading in the League cup on 25 September 2007. During his debut season Torres became the first player since Robbie Fowler to score more than 20 goals in one season.

During Liverpool's stunning run to second place in the 2008-09 season Torres scored a brace against Blackburn Rovers. His first goal which came in the fifth minute of play was a composed volley played off of his chest from right inside the 18 yard box.

On 31 January 2011 Torres signed away from Liverpool to Chelsea for a fee of £50 million. His was the highest fee Liverpool had ever received for a player. It also made him the world's fourth most expensive footballer.
