Steven Gerrard fit to face Marseille for the UEFA Champions League


Liverpool super star Steven Gerrard is available to play against Olympique Marseille in their Champions League Group D game after recovering from a groin injury, manager Rafa Benitez said on Tuesday.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's match at Anfield, Benitez told the club's website: "He (Gerrard) was training and is available. And I think that he could start and I think he could play 90 minutes, but in the end that depends on the player during the game."

The popular Gerrard tore the adductor magnus muscle in his right leg against Bolton Wanderers in the Premier League on November 15.

As we know, the midfielder missed England's 2-1 victory over Germany last week and Liverpool's game at home to Fulham on Saturday.

Liverpool Football Club, who suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat by Marseille at the same stage last season, are second in Group D and victory at Anfield would put them through to the last 16.

Fernando Torres backs Cristiano Ronaldo for World Best Player Award


According to a famous magazine, Spanish footballer Fernando Torres assured that Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo is the most deserving player of the European and World Player of the Year awards after his amazing performances for the Red Devils in the 2007-08 season.

Indeed, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a magnificent total of 42-goals for the Old Trafford side last season to help them lift the Premier League as well as Champions League title.

Liverpool frontman Torres is also on the 23-man shortlist for the prestigious award, however Torres insisted that the Portuguese International, who has already been named the FIFPro World Player of the Year for 2008 “has class of his own” and should win the award.

"No-one can rival him," Torres expressed. "He is in a class of his own. I have never seen a comparable player.

"I can say that what he did last season is incredible. No-one won this year what he's won: Champions League, Premier League and Golden Boot. Yes, for me he is the best player in the world. A machine. Incomparable" he concluded.
