Suarez hails torres' help

Luis Suarez has said that Fernando Torres convinced him to move to Liverpool when they talked during the febrile few days of last December in which the Spaniard moved to Chelsea.

Suarez said he felt "intimidated" after sealing his £22.8m Anfield move. "There are so many people watching you. You feel the pressure of what the club has paid for you, but I tried to live as calmly as I could," he said.

Torres appears to have had some contribution to Suarez's rapid acclimatisation, even though he was about to leave. "He told me to be the same player I always was, not to try to change, that Liverpool were a great team and that they would help me to grow a lot. He was exactly right," Suarez added.
