Fernando Torres Was Simply Unstoppable In His Prime Years At Liverpool

"I needed Steven in the team; any system, any team. A key player for me and obviously the most important player in that role, as a No.10, a little bit in front of Mascherano and Alonso.

"The best player that I've played with. I've said many times that he is the player who completed my game.

"There is a 'before and after' since I started playing with him. So an icon player, captain of that team and I would be so happy to be able to play with him again.

"Godin, Puyol and Terry are very good with the ball and they are strong defenders so we can defend with three all the time."
