Torres happier in Liverpool than Madrid

Fernando Torres feels happier in Liverpool than in Madrid.

The 23-year-old, speaking to Spanish newspaper Publico, spoke of his satisfaction with life on Merseyside.

"It's different here (to Madrid). I can go and have a coffee without any pressure. I can go for a walk and not be reminded at every step that I am a footballer. That allows me to be more calm on the pitch and enjoy myself more.

"I can see that I play for a team which is respected by its rivals.

"And it is easy to get along with (Steven) Gerrard on the pitch. You don't have to do anything strange, wherever you move he gives you the ball. He is fantastic."
