Liverpool striker Torres in furious verbal battle with Real Madrid's Pepe

Liverpool ace Fernando Torres exchanged verbals with Real Madrid defender Pepe during Tuesday's 4-0 victory.

Marca says comments made by Pepe before the game about knowing how to keep Torres quiet had the Reds striker burning in the lead-up to the big game.

During the intense dual, Pepe decided to taunt Torres with "we have won nine European Cups", to which the Spanish striker replied: "Yeah, but you haven't won any of them!"

Torres, upon opening the scoring, also made a gesture to the television cameras with his hands and it's suggested he was sending a message to Real president Vicente Boluda, who had been busy talking about how they would win both legs of the Champions League tie.
