If Saturday’s loss to Stoke was not bad enough, the news that Fernando Torres picked up an injury during the game makes things even worse for Liverpool. Torres sustained an ankle ligament strain but we do not know the full extent of the injury yet and Torres is going to be assessed by the Spain medical team as he is still going to join up with the National Team for their friendly on Wednesday night in Lisbon.
Now we all know that Torres has injury problems and he has only recently come back from another injury and he is starting to find his form again so the timing of this latest set back is not good. Now what I do not understand is why does he still have to go and join Spain for a friendly if he is not 100% fit? And Torres always seems to come back from international duty with an injury. Surely if the Liverpool medics say Torres is injured then he should not go and play for Spain?
