Fernando Torres’ Future

Posted by atleti on June 11, 2007

Last Saturday. June 9th,  Atletico Madrid lost a crucial home game to Celta Vigo, 2-3, slipping from the last UEFA spot, with only one more round left.

1 Real Madrid 73
2 Barcelona 73
3 Sevilla 71
4 Valencia 65
5 Zaragoza 59
6 Villarreal 59
7 Atletico Madrid 57
8 Recreativo 53
9 Getafe 52
10 Racing 50

Next weekend, Zaragoza play Recreativo Huelva (away) and Villarreal play Sevilla (away). Both clubs have displayed strong, brave performances in their recent games and are no doubt eager to hold on to their European spot. If Zaragoza and Villarreal win next weekend, Atletico Madrid will miss out on UEFA– a sour end to a truly disastrous season.

Such an outcome will no doubt force FERNANDO TORRES to reconsider his future plans. ‘The Kid’ is a talented player and it only hinders his career to not participate in European competition. Indeed, if he stays with Atletico Madrid will be dubbed ‘a wasted talent’ by pundits.

Many clubs have been following his progress this season, namely Liverpool. According to the Spanish media, manager Rafael Benitez will make every effort to lure TORRES to Anfield now that he has given up hope in recruiting SAMUEL ETO’O for next season’s campaign.

If Atletico Madrid do not win their final game (away to a tough OSASUNA), clubs like Liverpool will undoubtedly bid for the player.
