Torres Close To Full FitnessTorres Close To Full Fitness

Liverpool expects Torres to be back to full fitness within the next month.

Reds boss Roy Hodgson has been trying to nurse Torres back to action slowly and the striker is yet to complete a Premier League game.

“He’s actually slightly ahead of schedule – he played a game earlier than we thought,” said Brukner, referring to the substitute appearance against Arsenal on the opening weekend of the season.

“He started off with a few minutes, then a few more minutes and then started the last couple of [Premier League] games.

“But for a kick on the shin against West Brom he would have played the whole game.

“We’re now at the stage where he can play the whole game.

“He’s still not at his physical peak, that will take another three or four weeks, but I think you can see in every game he’s played he’s improving.

“I don’t think it will be too long before the old Fernando Torres is back – and I’m looking forward to that.”
