Lehmann: Liverpool's Torres no Henry

When asked about Torres's quality after last night's Euro2008 final, Lehmann said: "Well, he scored and that's what you have to do as a striker but you're asking someone who played together for years with Thierry Henry and he was a God, performance-wise, when he was in England.

"So when you take him and compare him to other strikers, there's a difference and Torres is definitely still not at Thierry's level."

Asked if the 24-year-old could reach that standard, Lehmann - who has yet to decide whether he will play on at international level - shrugged: "Yes he could get there - but it will take him a while."
