Liverpool Fans Run Into Fernando Torres On Holiday, He's An Absolute Unit These Days
| Last updated
Fernando Torres continues to look like an absolute bodybuilder in new footage of him bumping into some Liverpool fans on holiday.
The European Championships and World Cup winner retired from football after a stint in Japan with Sagan Tosun and appeared to hit the gym straightaway.
Fans were left stunned when the Spaniard immediately became jacked with a physique that was a far cry from what he sported during his playing career.
That was a few years ago now but Torres evidently still pumps plenty of iron. Some Reds supporters met him on the beach and took a picture, with El Nino's, shoulders, pectorals and arms looking enormous.
Torres signed items for the fans and then ended up playing football with them in vans trainers at a nearby court.
The 38-year-old, who scored 85 goals in the Premier League for Liverpool and Chelsea, began his coaching career back at boyhood club Atletico Madrid as an assistant before being appointed manager of the Under 19's team in July 2021.
A few months later and he led Atleti to a 2-0 win over former side Liverpool U19s in the UEFA Youth League.

Los Rojiblancos ended up knocking rivals Real Madrid out in the round of 16 and reached the semi-finals, where they were beaten by Red Bull Salzburg.
Torres has made a huge impression on former Atleti boss Armando de la Morena, who believes he could manage the Spain national team one day.
“So what I see in him is that [...] if everything is going the right way, then we have a future coach for Spanish football and for Atletico and hopefully for the national team as well. Whatever what he wants.
“He spoke very well to you even when he was still a kid, 17, 18 years old. He is always respectable both on and off the field, for his manners and behaviour.
“After all, a coach has to be that. An example both outside and inside the field. And he meets those conditions.”
