TORRES: GOALS WERE FOR THE 96
Paul Hassall 13 April 2009
Fernando Torres has dedicated his double in Saturday's 4-0 rout of Blackburn Rovers to the memory of the 96.
The Spanish hot-shot pointed to the heavens after opening the scoring with a stunning fifth minute volley and later admitted that the goals held extra significance ahead of the 20th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.
"These goals are for the 96 and their families because I know that Saturday was a special day for them with it being the home game closest to the anniversary," said Torres.
"These goals are more special because of the service on Wednesday.
"All the goals are for the fans and the families. On Wednesday we will see all of them and we know it is an important day for them and for all Liverpool supporters.
"It makes Tuesday all the more important. We have to try to do it for the families and the 96."
