Torres urges Liverpool to sort out owner situation

Liverpool star Fernando Torres has urged the club to sort out its ownership situation sooner rather than later.

The Spanish striker feels a shift in who holds the rights to the club can make a big difference in what happens on the pitch.

"It's fundamental new owners arrive who can make us a competitive side," he said.

"We're not that far behind. We had an appalling season last time around but the year before we were just four points from Manchester United."

He added on Spanish radio station Cadena Cope: "Hopefully we can find a consortium that buys the club and can make Liverpool able to fight financially with Chelsea and United.

"Then let's see what we're capable of doing this season. Liverpool kept Steven Gerrard which was fundamental. It's still a great team.

"It's a delicate situation because we're not in the Champions League but it's still the biggest club in England and to play at Anfield every week is a privilege.

"That's how I see it. I like to have targets and to be able to help bring Liverpool back where they deserve to be is a beautiful target. It's always complicated when you start with a new manager and new players, but we'll see what we're capable of."
