Atlético Madrid confirmed the return of former striker Fernando Torres
Fernando Torres has returned home. The Atlético Madrid legend returns to the club to coach one of their academy teams.
Torres will be in charge of Atlético Madrid Juvenil A for the 2021/22 season. The 37-year-old, who last season spent time with different academy teams to get to know the day-to-day workings of their coaching staff and the club’s own methodology, will take a further step in his coaching journey by embarking on his first spell in the dugout.
The former Spain striker said farewell to the club as a player on 20 May 2018 in a match against Eibar. El Niño did so with a brace on a very emotional day for both himself and Atlético.
