Steven Gerrard Pays Tribute to Fernando Torres After Retirement

Steven Gerrard Pays Tribute to Fernando Torres After Retirement

Steven Gerrard has paid tribute to Fernando Torres after his retirement.

The Liverpool legend reacted after the Spaniard decided to call time on his illustrious 17-year career.

Torres last appeared for Sagan Tosu in Japan, but will be remembered for his spells with Atletico Madrid and Liverpool as well as the Spanish national team.

While at Anfield, Torres scored 81 goals in 142 games to become a club legend.

And a lot of his success in the four-year stay in Liverpool was down to the relationship he had with Gerrard.

The Rangers manager was among the first to pay tribute to Torres after he announced his retirement earlier:

Together, Gerrard and Torres almost got a Premier League title in the 2008/09 season – finishing second instead.

But it was a partnership that is remembered fondly by many supporters, as well as Gerrard.

Torres left Liverpool for Chelsea in 2011 before having a loan spell out at AC Milan and then four seasons back with boyhood club Atletico Madrid.
