Torres tells young Liverpool fan: I could never join Man City

Fernando Torres has told one Liverpool fan he could never leave the club for Manchester City. Rameez Mahomed, from Johannesburg, was one of 23 children who escorted the Spanish and Honduras players on to Ellis Park on Monday.

A fan of English premiership side Liverpool as well as Spain, Rameez said he took the opportunity to ask Torres a burning question - would he leave Liverpool for Manchester City next season?

"He told me he would never go to Manchester City because his heart was with Liverpool and also because he gets along well with Steven Gerrard," Rameez told the Sunday Times.

Rameez's mother, Sabera, said she was stunned to see her son walking out with Torres. "He idolises Torres. As a mother, to see that, it was really an overwhelming moment. My hands were shaking so badly you can see it on the video I took," she said.

The little boy said he wasn't at all nervous. "I wasn't nervous, I was just excited to be holding the hand of one of the best players in the world and not only the best, but my favourite as well."
