Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has revealed how advice from Real Madrid captain has spurred him onto success at Anfield.

Torres revealed: "When Spain went out of the World Cup in 2006 I was looking to Raul for comfort as one of the leaders of the team.

"He just said to make sure you never feel like that again. It seemed harsh at the time but now I understand.

"Now, when we play games like the win against Manchester United, I remember how it was in the dressing room that day and I do everything I can not to feel like that again."
