Fernando Torres has enjoyed one of the most prolific debut seasons in Premier League history, but Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina believes his Anfield team-mate will be even better next season.
Torres has taken English football by storm following his 21 million pounds club record move from Atletico Madrid.
The Spaniard has scored 23 league goals to equal former Manchester United forward Ruud van Nistelrooy's record for a foreigner playing their first season in England's top division.
But Reina is convinced his compatriot's first year in England has been a learning process that will reap greater rewards next term.
“You have to remember that this is Fernando's first season in England so he will improve and get even better,” Reina said.
“He always wants to learn and he will improve because he's hungry. As a player you are always learning and always looking to get better and believe me, that will be Fernando's goal next season.
“English football is different but he has adapted really well – better than anyone could have expected. You only need to look at the number of goals he has scored.”
