Fernando Torres is confident Rafa Benitez will stay with Liverpool, despite the club's current boardroom turmoil.

"Rafa has coached in Spain and England and his ideas are the same," he told Spanish radio station Marca FM.

"The difference is in Spain he was a coach and here he is a manager, coach, in charge of signings, in charge of the youth teams, the man who chooses the coaches who he thinks are the right ones for the reserve team...

"(Manchester United boss Sir Alex) Ferguson or (Arsenal manager Arsene) Wenger are the examples that show that in England even when you're not winning trophies clubs give time to their coaches.

"I think that Benitez is going to be at Liverpool for a long time."
