Ferran torres (Valencia, 21 years previous) has round him lots of people who fear about what he can or can not say in an interview. Nonetheless, after a quiet dialog, it appears that evidently such precautions wouldn’t be essential. The ahead of the Manchester Metropolis, with a scandalous scoring common within the nationwide staff (eight objectives in 17 video games, virtually half a purpose per conflict), is a boy who from a really younger age put himself within the palms of the trade that right this moment surrounds footballers: illustration companies, picture companies , advertising … And but he talks about canines and consuming hamburgers every now and then naturally. Additionally of what it means to earn a lot cash from such a younger age and, even, virtually unintentionally clarify the success of this staff, by which he’s a everlasting fixture. Ah! And at all times with a watch on his sister, in case he will get a “slap”. As it’s.

How are you?
Effectively, glad to be right here once more within the choice.
With 21 years you might be mounted on this staff. What does that sound like?
To the arrogance of the coach, that’s the first, since I’m doing issues properly in my membership. However the troublesome factor, which is to remain, comes now.
Does not that put an excessive amount of strain on you now?
On this staff, as quickly as you drop your efficiency a bit, you might be unnoticed. That makes you extra alert, work extra. Additionally, there’s nothing larger than defending the flag of your nation. Subsequently, it isn’t one thing destructive, it’s constructive. After the nice Euro Cup we did, we do not wish to cease. We’re very excited and we’re very bold.
Do you suppose that the Eurocup managed to get the followers hooked on this staff once more?
I feel so. We had a terrific match, and I feel persons are pleased with how we signify this nation. For us that assist is essential proper now.
Did you anticipate to have that good Euro Cup?
We had been clear that we needed to go recreation by recreation. For a lot of it was the primary time, and fortunately every thing turned out fairly properly in the long run.
What was the important thing? The dangerous begin, the isolation, the Ramos theme …
The adversities made us sturdy. They introduced us collectively as a staff. We had been all on the identical path, nobody believed himself greater than anybody, and that continues to be the identical. In right here nobody believes greater than anybody.

You’re within the palms of two very demanding coaches. Guardiola and Luis Enrique. What have they got in frequent and what’s totally different about them?
I feel it exhibits within the recreation. They each wish to have the ball so long as doable, they wish to play the identical factor no matter how the outcome goes, and above all, that they’re loopy about soccer, who search to enhance on a regular basis and thereby enhance their gamers. That, on a private stage, as a result of I’m younger and I feel I’ve lots of room for enchancment, it is extremely vital.
That demand retains you in your toes, I suppose.
Sure, additionally as a result of I play for among the finest groups on this planet and soccer doesn’t watch for anybody. In case you get misplaced, you fall behind.
The brand new generations, it’s stated lots, have little ambition, little tradition of effort. Footballers, due to this strain, do they escape that?
Sure, we be taught from a younger age, on the one hand, to reside with strain, to know that the competitors is most to succeed in the highest. And later, if you find yourself an expert, you already know that your profession may be very brief, that soccer, as I say, do not wait, yearly is one much less yr you must develop as a footballer and as an individual.
However do you suppose footballers mature earlier than the remainder of the folks of their technology?
I might say sure, since you are in a unique bubble than the remainder. Footballers often earn some huge cash, and incomes a lot cash from such a younger age forces you to mature, as a result of if you happen to do not, your head may exit of enterprise.
Sweden is a bone. In the event that they lose, they’ll go to 2 play-offs to go to the World Cup. Do you retain that in thoughts?
If I inform you the reality, no. We’re going to Sweden with the utmost ambition, will probably be very troublesome, however we’ve to go with out strain, as in all matches, to assault, to attain objectives. Hopefully we will win.
The place are you most comfy? In a band or as a middle ahead?
Effectively, till final yr I had by no means performed as a ahead, however they put me there, I answered and it is like, little by little, I am feeling extra comfy. I can play in any of the three positions above. The vital factor is to play.
Can the purpose be labored?
Sure. I imagine that every thing could be labored on. It’s clear that some gamers are simpler to attain than others, however I feel every thing could be labored on, you may enhance any facet. I am scoring lots of objectives, however I feel I can enhance management, definition …
One in every of your mirrors has at all times been Cristiano, and there are those that see qualities of Portuguese in you.
These are main phrases. However I’m bold, we’re totally different gamers, though it’s true that I’ve at all times paid consideration to him. Now that we’re additionally going to be virtually neighbors, I’ll look much more.

What do you love to do if you find yourself not centered?
Now that it has opened somewhat extra after the Covid, in Manchester I reside on the outskirts and I’ve lots of room to go for a stroll. I rescued a canine and …
They are saying you’re a mad canine …
I can not reside and not using a canine. I used to be and not using a canine final yr and I had a tough time. I like rescuing canines which are homeless. It helps me distract myself from the strain, from the video games. Milo goes to be known as my new canine, which involves me in September after all of the authorized procedures. I’ve taken it from a kennel and I’m very joyful. In life you will note me purchase a canine.
The place does that love for canines come from?
Since I used to be born I’ve a canine, the truth is I’ve the primary one tattooed on my arm. His identify was Rex, a German shepherd combined with wolf, and in addition after my sister. I’m very near my sister Arantxa, she is a bit older than me and he or she involves Manchester lots. She is what I like essentially the most on this world.
What’s she to you?
Effectively, it is the one which places me in my place. She’s the one who, if my head ever goes off, is ready for me to slap me.
Has a house health club.
Sure, it was one of many first issues I did. As I used to be saying earlier than, the lifetime of a footballer is brief, each little element counts, and no matter helps me to increase it, even 0.01%, I’ll do it.
Are you very obsessive about consuming, sleeping, and so on …?
I am strict, I’ve my chef, I’ve supplementation at dwelling, I’ve every thing … However it’s true that a couple of times every week, I would like a little bit of nasty, a hamburger or a pizza, particularly as a result of it involves my head. excellent at sure instances.
