Torres insists current Liverpool team can get even better

Fernando Torres has backed the current Liverpool side to continue improving as Jurgen Klopp looks to bring more silverware to Anfield this season.

Liverpool have enjoyed an impressive start to the new campaign as they bid to build on last season’s Champions League success, currently leading the Premier League by six points after an unbeaten start to the league season.

Former Liverpool forward Torres, who enjoyed a prolific three-and-a-half year stay on Merseyside, has praised the club’s progress in recent seasons and insists his former side still possess the potential to get even better.

“Their progress is amazing,” Torres said in an interview with Liverpoolfc.com.

“Since Jürgen Klopp came, things have got better and better. Liverpool added some amazing players to the squad, some of them are the best in the world. They are in the right way to become better.

“It’s difficult to say after getting 97 points and winning the Champions League, but the potential of the team can still be better and that’s huge. Hopefully that happens.

“It’s not easy in this period of football to make one step forward and compete against all the teams with more resources, but they did. So people must be really proud of the board, the coach and obviously the players.

“I’m sure they will reach their goals this season. I’ll be supporting, 100 per cent.”
