He took over after the 1st leg defeat to Napoli. Came in and turned that 2nd leg around, beat Benfica, overcame Barca somehow and beat Bayern in the Final. That Champions League win was down to him. AVB had them on the brink of elimination after the Napolo defeat.
Ah yeah, remembering now. A big part in it could also have been the players proper hating AVB's methods and having their spirits invigorated by his dismissal. But like I said, not really trying to take away from his achievement, but there are more factors to it other than his management ability.
To win anything with Torres though must be praiseworthy.
