(CNN) -- Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has backed manager Rafael Benitez to turn the club's fortunes around and reiterated his desire to remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future.
A poor run of results in the English Premier League and a premature exit from the Champions League has heaped the pressure on the Liverpool boss.
But despite their recent woes the 25-year-old Spain international believes compatriot Benitez is the man to breathe new life into the Reds' season.
"Right now I don't see myself playing elsewhere," Torres said on his personal Web site.
"It looked like this was going to be our season, but it's turned out very differently from what we expected.
"We've lost more games this season than in the previous two put together, but we have to keep pushing forward.
"Rafa's going to prove just why he is so well respected in the game, and he's going to turn this situation around.
"I still have four years left on my contract and my future is here, it's not linked to Rafa's, but I hope that we can see out our contracts here together."
Torres added: "It's not been a great season so far. We are out of two competitions, the Carling Cup and the Champions League, and we are also a little off the pace in the league. But we still have the FA Cup and the UEFA Europa League to look forward to.
"We have to focus on what lies ahead instead of looking back at what we can no longer win. The team have not done the business in the league, but the season is still young."
