Torres announces retirement

Fernando Torres has said goodbye to his professional football playing days after a memorable career in the sport.

The 35 year old forward was known as El Nino in Spain after becoming the captain of Atletico Madrid at the age of 19.

He spent his best days in football at Liverpool before moving to Chelsea for a then record £50 million transfer.

Apart from winning the FIFA World Cup, UEFA European Championships and the UEFA Champions League (Liverpool and Chelsea) he also finished third in the 2008 Ballon d’Or list.
