Pool sweat on Torres

LONDON - Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez admits he is unsure whether Fernando Torres will play again this season as the Spain striker struggles with a knee injury.

LONDON - Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez admits he is unsure whether Fernando Torres will play again this season as the Spain striker struggles with a knee injury.

Torres missed Liverpool's draw with Fulham last weekend as a result of the problem and was due to return to Spain to see a specialist for a second time this week.

But the volcanic ash cloud that has been causing travel chaos across Europe delayed Torres' trip and Benitez, whose side host West Ham tonight, is nervously awaiting news.

It has been reported that Liverpool fear Torres will need more surgery and that his season, and possibly his participation at the World Cup, could be over. - Sapa-AFP
