Atletico Madrid legend Fernando Torres has returned to the Spanish La Liga club in a coaching capacity. The new development involving Torres was announced by the club last week Sunday.
Torres, fondly called El Nino, has been getting to grips with the coaching methodology at Atletico Madrid before taking the u-19 coaching job. The u-19 team is known as Juvenil A.
El Nino is a product of the Atletico Madrid Academy having joined the youth ranks in 1995. Fernando Torres showed his quality as a very good striker at an early age and he was drafted into the first team. The Spaniard played his first game for the Atletico first team at the age of 17 and he was already the club captain at the age of 19.
Fernando Torres left Spanish champions Atletico Madrid to sign for Liverpool where he became one of the most feared strikers in world football. He was a Liverpool player for over three years before his controversial transfer to Premier League rivals Chelsea. He returned to Atletico Madrid via AC Milan some years later. Torres made more than 400 appearances over his two spells at the club.
In a related development, Borja Resurreccion has been the name the coach in charge of Cadete B. Borja Resurreccion is the brother of Atletico Madrid star Koke who also represents the Spanish national team.
