Liverpool striker Fernando Torres admits he's been stunned by manager Rafa Benitez's row with the club's American owners.

Torres has called for Liverpool's owners to unite behind Benitez ahead of Tuesday's must-win Champions League match in Marseille.

He said: "This match is perhaps the most important since my arrival at Liverpool. It would be a big error to change the coach after the sensational reign he has had at this club.

"The people and players are with Rafa and we need total unity to resolve the situation in the Champions League."
