Real Madrid defender Gabriel Heinze admits he's been impressed by how quickly Fernando Torres has adapted to life at Liverpool.

Heinze, who saw a move to Liverpool blocked by former club Manchester United in the summer, told Onda Madrid: "I think he is winning over there. I've seen him play and I am surprised by his adjustment, because the other strikers who are Spaniards have not adapted as easy as him.

"He is growing also, with strength, and now getting a lot of goals. What I am seeing is very good."
