It looks as though Liverpool won’t be playing Champions League football next season and I’m sure many Liverpool fans will be wondering if they can hold onto their key men for next season.
This summer is bound to be very busy at Liverpool, with the American owners likely to do a runner and Rafa Benitez also tipped to leave Anfield but what about Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard?
No matter who you support, you would have to agree that both players are far too good to be playing Europa League football next season and I for one am hoping they both leave Liverpool. Obviously Liverpool fans will be hoping the pair stay but if they (Torres & Gerrard) have any ambition at all, they should leave.
Gerrard, 29, has said in the past that he wants to achieve things in his career but I’m afraid, he is running out of time and if he stays at Liverpool, he won’t be winning anything. Inter Milan and Real Madrid have been linked with the England midfielder in the past and I’m sure those two will be monitoring his situation all summer long.
Meanwhile, Torres is still quite young at 26 and if Liverpool were to sell him in the summer, they would no doubt receive upwards of £50 million for the Spaniard. The former Atletico Madrid striker is too good to be playing for Liverpool in my opinion and the sooner he leaves the club, the better.
