The footballer has passed through the hands of Guardiola and Luis Enrique, with whom he has reached his maximum performance. Xavi, his next coach, was also chiseled by both coaches

- Interview Ferran Torres: “Earning so much money so young forces you to mature”
Rex travels everywhere with Ferran Torres (Foios, 2000). Of course, I also accompanied him to Barcelona, where he underwent a medical examination yesterday. There, in Barcelona, he has in mind to become one of Xavi’s cornerstones for the reconstruction of the battered Barça team. When Ferran was born, Rex, a German shepherd mixed with a wolf, was already by his side. That is why when the animal died, he did not hesitate to tattoo his figure on his left arm. His love for dogs rivals his passion for football. A sport in which he is privileged and where he travels at full speed. He is only 21 years old.
I am very close to my sister Arantxa. It’s what I love the most in this world. She puts me in my place. If my head ever goes off, he’s waiting for me to slap me, the striker acknowledged in September, during an interview with EL MUNDO. Weeks later, a broken foot will prevent him from wearing the Manchester City jersey, with whose jersey he won a Premier and a League Cup, always under the command of Pep Guardiola.
His career was cooked in the Valencia oven, under the baton of Albert celades (the technician who has given him the most minutes) and Marcelino (who started betting on him seriously). However, its maturation process has revolved around the Barça genetics. Guardiola gave the OK for City to pay for 25 million in the summer of 2020. And in the Premier he left a handful of great flashes, such as that hat-trick against Newcastle or the double against Arsenal, in August, his last two targets on the islands. Pep’s tactical obsession, that you love the great Xavi in the best Bara of all time, counted on Ferran.
0.54 goals per game with Spain
He also had no doubts Luis Enrique, the last coach to win a Champions League with Barcelona (2015), in the year of Xavi’s farewell. The coach, a great friend of Guardiola, called Ferran for the first time in September 2020, for a Nations League match against Germany. Since then, in 15 blazing months, the Valencian footballer has become the top scorer: 12 goals in 21 games. An average of 0.54 per encounter. Annotating records that rival those of David Villa. When he was only eight years old, he traveled to Madrid to see him win a Copa del Rey at the Vicente Caldern. I always paid attention to him a lot, the striker usually repeats.
Goals, among many other things, since Ferran’s repertoire is wide, is what Xavi is looking for with this reinforcement, which will have passed through the hands of three Barcelona icons. In the Barça changing room he will meet again with Pedri, who is joined by friendship and representatives. Also with Eric garca. The three were inseparable during the concentration with the Spanish team, during the last European Championship. Ferran, however, was the only one who did not receive the call for the Tokyo Olympics. That disappointment seemed like a platform for his Manchester City career to take off. It was not so. After injuring himself against Italy in the semi-finals of the Nations League, he did not play again for a single minute. Yes, with the shield citizen He went on to score 16 goals in 43 games.
“He knew how to adapt to his new body”
There is a key moment in Ferran’s progression. In his physical and football evolution. I remembered this newspaper Jos Gimeno, former Valencian sub’18 coach, while continuing his takeoff in the last Euro. As a first year cadet he underwent an incredible physical change and during that stage his progression came. In that category he stood out for his physiognomy, which allowed him to get more advantage. He had to work at a coordinative level and when he made the leap to youth, he stood out a lot. He knew how to adapt to his new body, he remembered who his technician was.
No one is surprised by Ferran’s new jump. Those who are by his side and have been designing his career already encouraged him to make the leap from Valencia, just over a year ago. They have also done it now, after opening the window of Barcelona in the winter market and finding the opportunity to return to Spain to be one of the protagonists in the resurrection of a great adrift.
A guy who, even though he’s 21, has only been able to celebrate his birthday five times. It is what it has to be born on February 29. A matter of point, which is something that Ferran does not lack. Neither technique, speed and overflow. That is why Xavi rubs his hands.
