The veteran Swede, who committed his future to the Villains last week, claims he is not concerned about facing Liverpool's 17-goal striker and will treat him just like any other forward he has marked.
"Let's not make Torres into Superman," he told liverpoolfc.tv. "He's just a player like everyone else. He's a good player but not better than very many of the other strikers in this country.
"Torres is a world-class striker but, like I said, he's not Superman."
