Torres plots plan to stay injury-free next season

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres intends to work tirelessly with the club's medical team over the summer in an attempt to keep him injury-free next season. The former Atletico Madrid front-man has been hampered by a string of problems this campaign, which has restricted him to just 19 Premier League appearances out of a possible 32. But although he has still managed to net 11 times - including a double against Blackburn at the weekend - the Spaniard admits it has been a frustrating season and that he intends to work with the Reds' medical staff over the summer to ensure he is available for as many matches as possible in 2009/10. "Maybe if I had played more then we would have scored more. I feel that 11 in 19 league games is a good record, and it is frustrating thinking what it could have been," he said. "But we must learn from this season and the injuries I have had, and try to stay 100 percent fit from the beginning of the season and play all the games. "I could have had more goals had I been fit more, but I will have to make sure I am fit all next season and then see how many I can get. "I will have to work with the staff at Liverpool to make sure I get a good pre-season and do not make the same mistakes as at the end of last summer." LIVERPOOL FANS!
