Fernando TorresIt seems like things keep getting worst at Liverpool. The club is already facing a harsh financial crisis nut now they will also have to cope without their top striker, Fernando Torres. The Spaniard has managed 19 goals in only 22 appearances in the Premier League, but he will only be able to watch his team mates fight for fourth place and for glory in the Europa League. To make things worst Liverpool are going to play Atletico Madrid in the semi finals of the Europa League, an encounter that Torres was very eager about since Atletico Madrid is the team that launched his career.

The 26 year old attacker arrived at Barcelona at the end of last week, where he will get operated. Due to the blockage of flights the trip to Barcelona took him 17 hours by train. His right knee has already been operated by Doctor Ramon Cugat last January; it was an operation that requested a stop of 5 weeks. His Liverpool season has finished but now Torres starts a race against time to recover in time for the World Cup. After a probable friendly in the end of May, Spain will have to announce their squad by the 1st of June. Spain’s first match in the World Cup is a group match against Switzerland on the 16th of June.
