Jamie Redknapp Blasts Torres Performance

The Liverpool legend has blasted Fernando Torres’s performance against Birmingham yesterday calling the striker “diabolival”.

Fernando Torres was branded “diabolical” and accused of lacking interest in an amazing blast from TV pundit Jamie Redknapp.

“Out there for 45 minutes today he (Torres) has been terrible. He hasn’t got hold of the ball, he hasn’t chased, he’s got frustrated, he could have been booked, he’s been diabolical.

“I’m his biggest fan, and of course you have to give Johnson and Dann credit, but he’s shown no appetite for the game. He’s looked frustrated, sloppy, lethargic. I know people talk about his rustiness, but he looked fed-up.”

“We must give Birmingham due credit for sticking close to him, but we know he missed matches at the end of last year, he missed matches at the World Cup and I’m not at all concerned about him.

“He will get better and better as the season goes on and I believe we should be discussing whether it’s a good season in May, not at the beginning of September.

“The longer the game went on, the stronger he looked and the more likely he looked to score – having said that, it would have been harsh on Birmingham if we had stolen a 1-0 victory.”
