Liverpool legend Rush: Torres best in world

Liverpool legend Ian Rush ranks Fernando Torres as the best striker in the world.

Rush said: "He has been fantastic. He is the Premier League's top scorer this season and the goals he scored against Hull were great, both right foot and left foot.

"Had he stayed on the pitch against Hull he could have scored five or six that day. With experience I think he will get better. He is only 25 and he is a big plus for Liverpool as he and Steven Gerrard play really well together.

"Without doubt he is the best striker in the world at the moment. Lionel Messi is a great player, Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player but they are different to Torres.

"David Villa is a great striker as well but Torres has proved it in the English league."
