Del Bosque assures Liverpool boss Benitez over Torres fitness

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has assured Liverpool he won't risk Fernando Torres' fitness in their World Cup qualifier against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Wednesday.

"Torres is in very good hands here," Del Bosque told AS.

"Yesterday he stayed at the hotel and did not train because we went to a pitch in which there was no stretcher. He stayed at the hotel with the physios. (Liverpool manager) Rafa Benitez has called me and I reassured him. We will care very much for Torres, like the rest.

"I told him (Benitez) that we will treat Torres as if he was at Liverpool. If the boy is well and wants to play, he will play against Bosnia. And if he has any problem, he will not play.

"It's that simple."
