Torres most popular shirt

2010-08-02 15:06

Liverpool - Liverpool striker Fernando Torres's surname was the most popular to feature on replica Premiership shirts printed worldwide last season.

It is the second successive season the Spaniard has been top, while Anfield team-mate Steven Gerrard was second in the top 10 list compiled by SportingiD.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney moved up one place to third.

Figures are based on the number of official club shirts sold domestically and internationally.

Arsenal duo Cesc Fabregas and Andrey Arshavin were fourth and fifth, followed by Chelsea pair Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo had been second in last season's list but unsurprisingly his name does not appear following his world record transfer to Real Madrid last year.

    Not surprised at all. He is the best striker in world football. No matter what any one says. He would have gotten the golden boot in the Premiership had he not been injured so much. 18 goals in 22 appearances - that's freakin amazing no matter which way you look at it.
