Villa hails Liverpool superstar El-nino

Valencia striker David Villa has praised his international striker partner Fernando Torres, claiming the Liverpool FC star is ‘unique’ and ‘a striker with so much quality, such magic and so much experience.’

The prolific pair have struck up a brilliant partnership for the Spanish national side and although Villa has plundered more goals than the Liverpool FC talisman, the Valencia forward believes Torres is a brilliant player whose explosive power sets him apart from his peers.
Villa is likely to start alongside Fernando Torres against France tonight despite the latter only recently returning from injury, and the Valencia forward was fulsome in his praise for the Anfield hero.
Speaking about the Liverpool FC star, Villa told AS: “Strikers live for goals, we have to score goals, it is what measures our performance.”
“At the moment he's (Torres) not having luck in front of goal but his work has been good for the team and we have to be happy with his work-rate,"
"If at the moment he hasn't scored many goals it's strange because he has scored goals all his life.”
“A striker with so much quality, such magic and so much experience, despite not having a good year, he is always dangerous and never do you want to face him.”
"The power he has in the last few metres - in other things he is very good, but this is unique.”
“The start, the power, I've never seen another player with that much power in the last few yards and perhaps that is what we as other strikers want."
