Fernando Torres has once again called for a swift change in ownership at Liverpool in order to get the club back on track.

The Spanish forward has already had his say over the importance of finding new owners and following a disappointing deadline day at Anfield, the World Cup winner has once again spoken out against Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

“It is fundamental new owners arrive that can make us a competitive side,” said Torres. “We’re not that far behind. We had an appalling season last time around, but the year before we were just four points from Manchester United.

“Hopefully we can find a consortium that buys the club and can make Liverpool able to fight financially with Chelsea and United. Then let’s see what we’re capable of doing this season. Liverpool kept Steven Gerrard which is fundamental. It’s still a great team.”

The Spaniard also believes Liverpool’s target should be nothing less than a top four finish this season, but said it would be difficult after changes made over the summer, with Roy Hodgson coming in as manager and a number of players coming and going.

“It’s a delicate situation because we are not in the Champions League, but it is still the biggest club in England and to play at Anfield every week is a privilege. That’s how I see it.

“I like to have targets, and to be able to help bring Liverpool back where they deserve is a beautiful target. It is always complicated when you start with a new manager and new players, but we’ll see what we are capable of.

“This year our target has to be the top four. Like every team-mate, we all want to improve and win titles and for that it is fundamental we get new owners.”
