New Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has stated his desire to help Fernando Torres return to his best. The Spaniard has struggled at times this season, and often cut a lonely and isolated figure up front during the reign of previous boss Roy Hodgson. Dalglish however, is determined to do all he can to help Torres rediscover his scoring touch.

"He might be lacking a little bit of confidence, but he is still a top goalscorer and someone everybody fears when he crosses the line and goes on to the pitch", explained Dalglish to Liverpool’s official site.

"I’ve got fantastic respect for Fernando, not only as a footballer, but as a person as well. When he signed for the club he threw himself into learning about the history and tradition of the club, he really soaked it all up. 

"I hope I can help him, and I will help him in whatever way I possibly can. But then I would say that about any one of the players at this football club."

Liverpool travel to Blackpool tonight in what is Dalglish’s first league game in charge for 20 years. Having lost at home to the newly promoted outfit earlier in the season, the Reds will be keen to exact revenge this evening at Bloomfield Road.
