Torres to be back at Vincente Calderon

According to the surgeon treating Fernando Torres, the Liverpool striker could recover from his latest knee problem in as little as a week, calming fears he could miss the remainder of the season for his club and Spain's World Cup campaign.

Torres was unable to play in Liverpool's 0-0 draw with Fulham at the weekend and has travelled to Barcelona for treatment, but Dr Ramon Cugat has delivered a positive update on the fitness of Liverpool's top scorer.

"The problem is not serious but he needs to stop and rest to avoid more risk because it's the same knee on which he had surgery in January," Dr Cugat was quoted as saying in the Liverpool Echo.

"But in normal circumstances, he could be ready to play next week, depending on how it settles down. The decision is now up to Liverpool's medical staff and the manager."
