Benitez: Less pressure on Torres at Liverpool

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez believes Fernando Torres is thriving at Anfield as he's not under as much as pressure as he experienced at former club Atletico Madrid.

Benitez said: "We are very satisfied with him, he has a very good mentality and I believe that he is very pleased at Liverpool, is happy in the team, the fans like him very much.

"He has less pressure on him because with Atletico Madrid he was one player above the rest and he had to carry the whole club on his shoulders. But here he shares that pressure with teammates of much experience and this helps him to have more confidence, more calmness and to become a better team player."
