Keane can be my perfect partner, says Torres

Fernando Torres believes his partnership with Robbie Keane can help Liverpool end their 18-year wait to win the Premier League.

Torres linked up with Keane for the first time since his 20-million-pounds move from Tottenham in Saturday's 4-0 friendly win over Rangers.

The strike duo formed an instant rapport and Torres was impressed by his new team-mate's contribution.

“He's a fantastic player and an important player for us,” Torres said. “I hope he can score a lot of goals for Liverpool and that I can play alongside him many times.

“We've only been training together for a few days so it's not a lot of time, but the important thing for me is that he is always talking during games.

“The understanding between us and Steven Gerrard is important as well. He is the midfielder who is passing the ball to myself and Robbie and so the more training we do together the more good things we can do for Liverpool.”

If Liverpool are to mount a sustained challenge for the Premier League, Torres, who scored his first goal of pre-season at Ibrox, knows he will have to reproduce last season's goal spree.

He is full of confidence after helping Spain win Euro 2008 and has set his sights on landing more silverware this season.

“It was perfect to score my first goal because that's always important for strikers. I've only been training for one week and so it's understandable to feel tired,” he said. “The idea is to arrive fit and ready for the start of the Premier League season.

“It was a fantastic summer for Spain but now my thoughts are with Liverpool. Hopefully we will win a trophy – I want to win the Premier League or the Champions League.”
