  • Opinion ... Fernando Torres is wrong for the first time

" It's quiet ." Shortly after Fernando Torres has been treated since he debuted (2001), it is not difficult to imagine that the phrase of the only close friend who has spent with him these days in Japan, and that it is not of the family, is true. El Niño has long decided to leave football and take on Friday's game (12.30 pm, DAZN) as it has done almost everything in its life: no fuss, no stridency, nothing that alters its rhythm of life. In fact, neither his parents, nor his brothers, nor his best friends have traveled for this last chapter of his life. Of his professional life.

Only Olalla , his wife, and their three children, Nora, Leo and Elsa , in addition to one of the people who has guided his career from the start, will be this Friday at the Tosu Stadium , full (24,500 spectators) to say goodbye to his star. In recent days, nothing has changed in Fernando's day-to-day life, apparently focused on the sporting aspect of the night (the Japanese night, since in Spain it will be noon). A look at the classification of the Japanese League proves him right. His team, Sagan Tosu , is antepenultimate. With 24 points, he occupies the promotion position (then there are two below that are of direct descent). With two more (26), the Vissel Kobe is one place above, thus occupying the first place that grants permanence. That is, if Torres's team wins, he will leave the Villa and Iniesta team in the promotion position.


Because that is another. Fate has wanted the goodbye of one of the icons of the great era of the Spanish team to be in front of two other figures that share that historical character in national football. David Villa and Andrés Iniesta are the stars of the opponent and will add to the tribute, nothing ostentatious, that is intuited at some point. In any case, from Fernando's surroundings they insist that he is focused on the importance of the three points . Nor is it that they are decisive, because the match is part of the 24th day of the Japanese League, and there will be 10 left for Sagan Tosu already without Fernando Torres.

And what is Fernando going to do now? The first thing to return to Spain , although not for a long time, because he has signed a commitment with the Japanese team for which he will be his ambassador until 2020, and that will keep him still for long periods there. Then, he has said it many times, he will prepare himself to be able to hold a position in the world of football, synonymous in this case of Atlético de Madrid , which has opened the doors for him whenever he wants. It will not be soon . He doesn't want to be a kind face for the fans. The day I return, it will be for something important.
