Fernando Torres Marks Final Atletico Appearance By Getting On The Scoresheet

Fernando Torres Marks Final Atletico Appearance By Getting On The Scoresheet

Fernando Torres marked his final appearance for his beloved appearance by scoring twice in the last game of the season against Eibar.

After first joining the club as an 11-year-old in 1995, Torres went on to play over 300 times across two spells and became the club's youngest ever captain many moons ago.

And for his final game in Atleti colours, it was only right that the 34-year old was given the armband for one last time. Following the perfect script, Torres found the net twice, first equalising at the Wanda Metropolitano and then helping himself to his 129th goal for the club in the second half.

It was just meant to be, wasn't it? He won his first ever trophy with his boyhood club when he came on as a late substitute in the 3-0 Europa League triumph over Marseille in Lyon, and only a few days later he signed off with two trademark 'El Nino' goals.

It comes some 6195 days after he opened his account for the club in a second division game back in 2001.

The former Liverpool, Chelsea and AC Milan striker was subject to a brilliant tribute from his teammates going into the game as every Atletico player had his name emblazoned on the front.

Torres is Atletico through and through so seeing him score was truly wonderful. Congrats, Fernando.
