Liverpool sent Premier League title message by Fernando Torres amid Man City battle - Express

Fernando Torres sends message of support to Liverpool as they fight for Premier League

Fernando Torres and Liverpool may not have ended their association in the most positive manner but in this case time appears to be a great healer.

The manner of Torres £50million deadline-day departure to rivals Chelsea at the end of January 2011 rankled but both parties seem to have moved past that in recent seasons, instead looking back glowingly at his time at Anfield.

Torres was once the golden boy of the Kop, scoring 65 goals in his 102 Premier League games for the Merseyside club between 2007 and 2011.

And on Wednesday morning, Liverpools official Twitter account harkened back to those times by wishing him a happy birthday.

The 35-year-old was clearly delighted by the message and sent a message of total support back to Liverpool.

He replied: Thank you Reds !!! All the best for the rest of the season Ill be cheering for you!!! Big times ahead !!!

It seems as though the former Liverpool man has thrown his weight behind their campaign to win the Premier League and Champions League. They are currently top, although Manchester City have a game in hand.

The Spaniard was a revelation when he signed for the Reds, and whilst he left in rather sour circumstances, Torres is still considered as one of the best Liverpool players of the Premier League era.
