Fernando Torres has congratulated his former club Liverpool after they went on to win the Premier League title for the first time in their history. The Merseyside giants have thoroughly dominated the league during the current campaign and they were recently crowned as the new English champions with seven games of the season left.
As a result, they managed to end a three-decade wait for the league title and that has earned them plenty of praise from fans, pundits and former players. Torres was one of them, who came close to winning the title back in 2007 and he was definitely for the club after they ended a 30-year hunt for the English crown.
“Huge congrats to everyone at Liverpool on winning the Premier League. Unbelievable squad, magnificent manager, great staff but above all my sincere congrats to every single LFC supporter. You’ve been waiting so long and finally that desired trophy is yours. Very well deserved,” he wrote on his official Twitter account.
The Merseyside giants have another seven games left for the season and they need to get another 15 points from those matches to surpass the 100-point record set by Manchester City two years ago. That won’t be an easy task, however, with matches against City and Chelsea to come and they are scheduled to face the former at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday night.
Cityzens boss Pep Guardiola has already confirmed that his team would give a guard of honour for the newly-crowned champions, but the Spaniard will surely be determined to come up with the three points from the contest. While the result won’t do much of a difference, Guardiola needs to keep a winning mentality within the squad, given they still have the FA Cup and Champions League to play for. The Cityzens will face Arsenal in the semi-final stage of the FA Cup next month.
