Fernando Torres more in Demand these Days
Fernando Torres, that’s the name which is being repeated on a more consistent basis than anything else in Spain and in the supporters and players of Real Madrid as the Spanish forward found the back of the net on two occasions which was enough for Athletic Madrid to claim the victory and eliminate their rivals from the Copa del Rey.
Real Madrid managed to tie the match 2-2 with goals from Sergio Ramos and C.Ronaldo but it wasn’t enough as the aggregate scoreboard was 4-2 in favor of Athletic Madrid.
The Spanish forward made a move to Athletic Madrid on a loan deal which runs up until the end of the season and things have started out in superb form as he helped his childhood club on advancing through the next stages of the Copa del Rey where they will be facing off with Barcelona.
When the match was over and Real Madrid was eliminated from the tournament, Cristiano Ronaldo apologized to the fans of the club
“In the name of the team, I can only apologize to the fans, because we could have done better in the second half. I appreciate the support we received on the bus, and the reception they gave me before the game.You cannot score in every game, or be at your best. Tell me a player who always plays well. I am not from another planet. Maybe I am not perfectly fit, but I will be there’’ Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo said.
The Portuguese player continued on saying that Athletic Madrid have a very defensive playing style which focuses on sitting back and waiting for set-pieces while also going on and saying that in the long run it might even be better that Real Madrid was eliminated from the Copa del Rey as they can now focus on the Champions League and the Spanish League, La Liga.
