Fernando Torres supports Juande Ramos’ Anfield stance

Spanish striker says the atmosphere won’t affect Real Madrid

Fernando Torres in training for Liverpool

When Juande Ramos claimed that the massively overhyped “famous Anfield roar” would have no effect on Real Madrid, it was widely considered to be a petty mind-game but his opinion has been backed up by Fernando Torres.

The Real Madrid boss said that visiting Liverpool would be no more special than experiencing the Bernabeu, Nou Camp or San Siro and his compatriot Torres has agreed that the home crowd won’t have much of an impact. He said:

“Anfield is special, but they won’t fear the scenery. The players of Madrid have played in the better stadiums, in the better competitions and it’s not going to impress them.”

    Better competitions? Better stadiums? Clearly FT is not very impressed with either Anfield or the CL.
