Body language of Liverpool star Torres branded just not right

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres' body language is a shocker according to one Premier League coach.

Torres has been criticised for his lacklustre performance against Birmingham City last Sunday.

And one Premier League assistant manager told the Daily Mail this week: "People talk about body language and as a coach it is something you look for.

"I have to say, with Torres it stands out a mile at the moment. It's just not right.

"The question is, is it because he is unfit or because he feels he doesn't want to be there?

"Sometimes, if a player has had an injury it can take ages for him to believe he is fit. Even if the doctors tell him the scans are clear, he can take a while to really feel good.

"Either way, Torres just looks unrecognisable. And Liverpool's problem is that if you take him and Steven Gerrard away, then they look an average side."
