Fernando Torres hails his time at the spearhead of Liverpool's attack alongside Steven Gerrard as the most enjoyable period of his career.

Fernando Torres has declared that playing alongside Steven Gerrard at Liverpool was the best time of his career.

The Chelsea striker spent three seasons alongside Gerrard, forming a formidable partnership which is remembered fondly at Anfield.

Gerrard played his 600th game for the Reds in the draw with Newcastle United, a landmark that Torres thinks is thoroughly deserved.

He told Liverpool's official website: "I think it's an amazing achievement for him and it is very well deserved. He is a winner and a captain

"I enjoyed playing next to him for three and a half seasons. It was probably the best time I have had on a football pitch. I am who I am now thanks to him because he showed me the way.

"So I am happy for him and I am sure that he will play much more than 600 games for Liverpool."

Torres and Gerrard will be on opposite sides this weekend when the Reds visit Stamford Bridge.
