Crazy cool old footage! Fernando Torres, in Atletico Madrid scarf, singing Diego Simeone song

We are just a few hours away from Chelsea’s first leg at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-final.

Fernando Torres has been tipped to start at the Vicente Calderon with Samuel Eto’o injured and it will be an emotional night for El Nino.

Before joining Liverpool, Torres was the icon of Atletico Madrid – a world class young striker that had come through the ranks and banged in the goals left, right and centre.

Tonight Torres returns and will undoubtedly receive a great welcome from the home supporters where he is still adored.

And, judging by the video above, you can see why. Torres was there, supporting current coach Diego Simeone in his playing days!


Torres appears on screen at 0:46 on the video.

Great find by @LeeRoden89.
