Atletico Madrid supporters might be a little worried
The Atletico Madrid supporters might be a little worried with the fact that their superstar Fernando Torres is not producing goals frequently, but, as far as Diego Simeone, the manager of the team is concerned, he reckons the work ethic of the veteran player is fine and it is not long before he starts piling on goals again.
Torres has netted in only two of the twenty one games he has appeared in during the summer so far and that, according to his standards, is less than average performance.
However, Torres’ poor form has not affected the overall performance of Atletico that much.
The Red and Whites are still in a pretty good position in the La Liga standings with a total of 35 points in 16 games.
Speaking about Torres yesterday, Simeone said, “If his work ethic continues to be the same as it is, I have got no doubt that we would soon see him amongst the goals again.”
“He is somebody who has got this knack of scoring at crunch moments. I am sure he would deliver for us again in that sort of situation. Everybody is waiting for his 100th and hopefully, it would come soon.”
Torres needs only one goal to become the 10th player to score a century of goals in the history of the club.
Torres has a long distance to cover though in case he wants to become the all time leading scorer for Atletico, but, he can get in that elite list of century makers if he scores one more.
Luis Aragones has got the most no. of goals to his name playing for Atletico.
Aragones, who died the previous year, had played 372 games and had found the net 173 times.
