Competing in the goldfish bowl of the English Premier League, playing alongside Liverpool heroes like Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher and in the company of Spanish teammates Pepe Reina, Xavi Alonso, and Albert Rieira, and performing in front of the Kop who quickly adopted him as one of their own, Torres describes what it means to him to play on one of the greatest stages in world soccer and compares and contrasts life in Spain with his new career in England. Torres also discusses his life out of the spotlight with his childhood sweetheart Olalla, his family and friends, and what inspires and motivates him.
