Liverpool boss Benitez chose Torres over Owen

Benitez said: "We were looking for a player with pace and power.

"We had a list of 10 strikers which we then brought down to two or three priorities.

"The first option was Torres because he was young.

"But Owen was one of those on the list we had, he was one of the names.

"There were a lot of things to consider - the age and other conditions.

"The senior players here talked really well about Michael but in the end Torres was our decision. I am really happy with Torres although I know that Michael is also a very good finisher."
