Atletico Madrid forward Fernando Torres has revealed that he end his playing days while representing the Spanish club.
The 33-year-old returned to the Vicente Calderon a few years ago after playing for the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea amongst other clubs. After coming through the ranks at the club, he went on to become the youngest captain at Atletico. His move to Liverpool came in the summer of 2007 and this brought out the best in terms of goals from Fernando Torres.
Even though he was unable to replicate the same goalscoring form at Chelsea following a £ 50 million move, Torres was able to win every other with the blues. He played a major role in the Champions League success for the club in the 2011-12 campaign. His success with the Spanish national team at the European championship and the World Cup have made him one of the most successful football players in terms of trophies won. Now, Torres is looking to end on a high, but he says that the perfect entertainment for him would be to end his career as an Atletico player.
After the departures of Diego Costa, Torres was brought in as the backup centre forward in Diego Simeone’s team. Simeone was one of the experienced players in the Atletico squad when Torres was still a youngster. Now, he plays an integral role in the Atletico set up even if not as a regular player. "I am at home. I came back to Atlético after eight years and this is where I feel genuinely happy. My desire is to play for Atlético and retire here while also winning trophies and helping the club to continue to be one of the best in Europe. That is the only option I have in my head at the moment," said Fernando Torres.
