ALONSO: FERNANDO TORRES COULD PLAY IN EURO 2016

Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso claims if the Ex-Liverpool and Chelsea striker continues to play well he should be considered for Spain at the European Championship.


The Spanish international won European tournaments in 2008 and 2012 when he was in great form. Torres and Alonso were Liverpool teammates from 2007 to 2009 and won two European Championships and a World Cup together for Spain before Alonso’s international retirement in 2014. The striker has scored seven goals in his last 11 games.

“If he continues at this level, he will surely have the chance to play at Euros, although Vicente [Spain coach Del Bosque] has the last word

“I am happy to see him back to his best form and he looks very happy at Atletico,” Alonso said of the 32-year-old striker who has returned to his boyhood club on loan from AC Milan. “The fans love him and he is an idol there. He is also a great friend because of all the experiences we have lived together. But on the field we are not friends. He seems happy and well-loved, and I am glad for him. I hope he continues that way after this [semifinal] tie.

On his ninth Champions League semifinal, Alonso said:

“There are no such things as favourites in a Champions League semifinal. Read more »

The future of Fernando Torres is covered in doubts

Fernando Torres is playing with Athletic Madrid on a loan deal that is close to reaching it’s end but there is a question that is surrounding the Spanish player and it’s in relation to what will happen with the 32 year old attacker after his time at the Vicente Calderon Stadium arrives.

Torres does not play a very influential role in Athletic Madrid as he is a player who has spent time on the sidelines of certain matches while there are other occasions where he gets playing time as a substitute.

The veteran player himself is not sure as to what will happen with him in the near future as he was asked about the possibility of having a contract renewal and Torres replied by saying: “Will there be a contract renewal for me at Athletic at the end of the season? That is not a question for me. There is nothing new about this matter. He said further that. My dream is to win a title with Athletic Madrid. I want to celebrate a title with this team. We have experienced very nice things, I started in Second Division and it would be a perfect moment for me.”

When the loan deal with Athletic Madrid expires, his time with Ac.Milan will also be reaching it’s end. The Italian club does have the option to keep hold of Fernando Torres for a longer period of time but considering his disappointing stint with Ac.Milan, it’s not likely that they will choose to extend the contract of Fernando Torres.

Tim Howard is confident that the club will be able to retain

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard is confident that the club will be able to retain the best players at the club despite interest in several top names. Everton were on a spending spree last summer after bringing in the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Gareth Barry.

It looked like they were on a path towards improvement and potentially challenging for the top four places. However, a poor campaign ended up in Everton being without even the Europa league for the upcoming season. It appears to have cost them immensely in terms of prestige, as a number of top names are being linked with moves to other clubs.

James McCarthy, Kevin Mirallas, and John Stones all have been linked with moves away from Goodison Park. The latter is particularly attracting interest from Chelsea, who have made it £ 20 million offer for him. Even the Everton have rejected this bid, the Premier League champions are not expected to withdraw from their pursuit of their top transfer target. The chance to join a club like Chelsea – who will offer a lot of opportunities to win trophies – will be tough to turn down for Stones. Despite such interest, the 36-year-old goalkeeper says that Everton will retain their big names. Read more »

Atletico Madrid won an unlikely league title a few years ago

Atletico Madrid won an unlikely league title a few years ago and not many expect them to repeat the same feat again with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid growing evermore stronger.

Atletico, though, have tried to prove this notion wrong by splashing out on several players in this transfer window. They have been one of the highest spenders in the summer after bringing in the likes of Jackson Martinez from Porto. The arrival of several new faces is likely to threaten the position of Fernando Torres in the team. The former Chelsea forward is on loan from AC Milan.

He is regarded as a legend at Atletico, but this is unlikely to help him in terms of first-team opportunities. Torres appears to be aware of it, and he claims that he will help Atletico in any way to help lift the league title once again. The 31-year-old forward is no longer at the prime of his career. He appears to have lost the bulk of his pace along with his finishing skills as well. A lifelong Atletico fan, he watched his team lift the league title. Torres appears to be keen on doing the same as a player. He has never won the la Liga title. Read more »

Fernando Torres liked the way the Chelsea supporters stood up

Fernando Torres liked the way the Chelsea supporters stood up and clapped for Steven Gerrard the other day when he was coming off the pitch having played his part in the match.

It was the last time Gerrard was making an appearance at Stamford Bridge.

Because of the Reds and the Blues being arch rivals, Gerrard has almost always been on the receiving end on his visits to Bridge and yesterday was no different either.

He was subject to some rude comments again, but, at the time he was taken off by his manager in the second half, each and every spectator present there showed a respectful gesture towards the playmaker.

According to Torres, it was wonderful to see the standing ovation being given to Gerrard as he deserves it.

The 31-year old wrote on a social networking site, “The legend being clapped off. What a gesture, so nice of Chelsea fans, privileged to have been a part of both the teams in the past.”

The gesture did not impress Gerrard himself though. He sounded a bit sarcastic of the fact that after ruthlessly bombarding him with abuses for a big part of the contest, the Blues fans opted to hand him a respectful ovation. Read more »

Fernando Torres managed to score 20 goals in 110 appearances

Fernando Torres managed to score 20 goals in 110 appearances during his time performing with Chelsea. This is a very underwhelming record for any forward and it’s even less impressive taking into consideration that the Spanish player arrived with to Stamford Bridge a price tag of €50 million.

However, even with this very disappointing record that Fernando Torres created in the team of Jose Mourinho, Torres revealed that his decision to leave Chelsea and join Ac.Milan was not a decision of the Portuguese manager.

Torres joined Ac.Milan in August of 2014 on a 2 year long loan deal and it was initially believed that this transfer was engineered by Jose Mourinho as he tried to kick-start the career of Torres and hopefully find the spark that he needed to start scoring goals on a consistent basis but it never happened as the Spanish player still struggled getting goals despite making a move to the Italian club, Ac.Milan.

The 31 year old player Spanish forward announced that this switch was a personal decision of his and it had nothing to do with Jose Mourinho or anything else.

‘’Mourinho has always been good to me. The decision to leave was a personal one because I needed more, I needed to feel important. Mourinho and I have a good relationship and still today we continue to talk to each other.’’ Fernando Torres said. Read more »

Diego Simeone happy with Performance of Torres

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone says that he is extremely happy with the contribution of Fernando Torres in the recent 0-0 draw with Sevilla.

Torres came on as a substitute late on in the match, but he was unable to prevent Atletico Madrid from only getting a point from the match. This meant that they were unable to close the gap on Real Madrid, who also only drew the match. This is seen as a great opportunity to reduce the gap to the top of the table to only five points. Even though Atletico would have had to also contend with the threat from Barcelona, it would have been a strong position indeed.

As it is, Atletico are going through a mini crisis in terms of form after managing only two victories from the last five matches in all competitions. This includes defeats against Bayern Leverkusen and Celta de Vigo. The defeat against Leverkusen, though, will be especially damaging given that it is in the first leg of the Champions League.

The return leg will be at the Vicente Calderon and Simeone will make sure that his team are pumped up for this encounter. However, their failure to score an away goal puts them at a major risk. Read more »
