The Spanish international had a superb first season in Premier League managing to score 33 goals for Liverpool. The other candidates were Ronaldo from Manchester United, Joleon Lescott from Everton and Richard Dunne from Manchester City.

Torres is also a candidate for Golden Ball but Ronaldo and Messi are the favorites for the title.

“El Nino” declared that he is very happy with the award and wanted to thank his manager, his colleagues and not at last the fans  who support him since arrival at Liverpool.

Torres is just returning from a hamstring injury that keep him out of action for some weeks. He came in as a substitute in Liverpool’s win 2-0 at Bolton  showing a great form as he set up an assist at Gerrard goal.

Torres will join up Spain for the International friendly against Chile.
