Blessed with blistering pace and a predatory instinct in front of goal, it could be argued Torres was the best number nine in the world – especially during his Liverpool days.

He scored 81 goals across four seasons with the Reds and won the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup with Chelsea.
Torres, famously nicknamed ‘El Nino’, retired from football back in June 2019 following a hugely successful 19-year career.
And it’s safe to say he now displays a much different look to the slender physique he had when he was a footballer.
The 36-year-old has bulked up considerably over the past year, with new photos emerging online leaving many fans startled at the difference between the Torres of old and new.
Torres, who took his first steps into coaching recently following his appointment as Atletico Madrid B boss, took to Instagram to announce his brand new role as ambassador for Southeast Asia casino company AW8.
“I’m so thrilled to announce that I am the official Brand Ambassador for AW8 in Southeast Asia,” Torres wrote.
“Join me on this journey and partnership with www.AW8.com for exciting events and crazy promotions to come.”
You get the sense this was a big win for both Torres and AW8 from a marketing perspective…
