“This year we will see the best Ferran Torres, the real one”
“We are in a very beautiful stage of growth and change that is making us mature”
FC Barcelona striker Ferran Torres confessed that the 4-0 win in last LaLiga Santander was “one of the best nights” of his life, at the same time that he highlighted the “very beautiful stage of growth and change” he is experiencing the azulgrana club at present, which is “making them mature”.
“It has been a year of much learning, with complicated and very beautiful moments, I have grown a lot as a footballer. Perhaps I have not brought out my best version, but that has strengthened me mentally and footballingly. In this second year we will see the best Ferran Torres, the really”, commented the player in an interview with Barça TV, on the occasion of his first year as a Barça footballer.
In these first 365 days since his signing from Manchester City, Ferran has realized that at Barça “you have to win yes or yes”. “There is a lot of passion and a direct rival who is fighting for the same thing as us. We are in a very beautiful stage of growth, improvement, and change that is making us mature. Good results are beginning to arrive,” he stressed.
“Here the pressure is maximum. It’s difficult when the results don’t match, so it’s important to surround yourself with professional people. Neither one of you scores every day you’re the best nor when they go badly you’re the worst, it’s about finding stability,” he added about his current moment.
The ex of Valencia has had to “fight for a position in the lead of FC Barcelona” during these months, in one of his “best moments as a footballer”. “Here are the best in the world, the comeptecnai is good, although sometimes it’s hard when you don’t play. The key is to be constant,” he analyzed, in a first calendar year in which he has played 44 games and scored 12 goals.
And one of his best memories is the 4-0 loss at the Santiago Bernabéu against Real Madrid in LaLiga Santander, “a perfect game to hit a blow on the table.” “Everything worked out for us. If it’s not the best, it’s one of the best nights of my life. Putting four against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu and at one point our delicate was spectacular,” admitted the one who made it 0-3.
Finally, Ferran praised the work of Xavi Hernández as a Zaulgrana coach. “He is very close, he knows how to manage very well when you don’t play too much, he continues to motivate you and you continue plugged in. He has turned the team around since his arrival, I only have good words for him”, he thanked, before asking 2023 for “health and that the injuries are far away”, just as he wished to offer a title to the fans.
