Reina claims Suarez better than Torres

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has told former teammate Fernando Torres that his exit was not a major blow for the club, The Sun reports.

Torres faces up to his former side for the second time since his £50m switch to Chelsea in January and will be looking to fare better than last time, where he was substituted on his debut. The Spaniard signed for the Reds from Atletico Madrid in 2007 and was hailed a hero on Merseyside, before he made the switch to Chelsea.

The Reds shot-stopper believes that Torres’ replacement, Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez, is even better and will fire the Reds to three points at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Reina said: ‘Luis is as good or even better than Fernando. Those players are really special. You don’t find those kind of players very often’.
