Fernando Torres believes that now is returning to fitness, because he does overtime to help the reroute Liverpool’s season.
Liverpool have struggled in the league and also was eliminated in the group stage of UEFA Champions League and have been hampered by injuries to key stars like Torres and Steven Gerrard.
However, both players have returned to action in recent weeks and, while Torres has looked below the aptitude, sometimes, the former Atletico Madrid striker is convinced that finally is overcoming the effects of injury the groin, that kept him out of six games in November and December.
“I’m fine now,” he said. “Much better than a couple of months ago. I have to keep working three, four or five hours more than the rest of the squad because I have to keep the recovery for the rest of the season.”
“One of the reasons that I am working very hard, it’s because I know that in this situation, each player Liverpool need is ready. It is a difficult time, but worth it if I want to play. I do normal training session with my teammates, but before and after the treatment I have to do exercises and gym work so my leg is strong enough. ”
“We’re doing a good job and I feel nothing wrong with my leg. I have been able to play 90 minutes in the last four games, so I’m very happy with the progression. Maybe I’ll have to do all season.”
He added: “It’s frustrating because I’ve never been injured before, not at Atletico and only a small one in my first season here. The last two seasons has been the first time I’ve had consecutive lesions.
“Whenever the computer is not the best time is frustrating if you can not help his teammates. It is very difficult to watch the matches from the stands.”
“I’m not old, but I’m not so young, so I have to watch with extra work. I know I have to work harder to play three games a week until the end of my career. I need to work harder than before.”
