Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has been forced to reconsider Fernando Torres’ future at the team after the striker’s fine run of form lately.
The Spanish international is on loan from Italian side AC Milan and the club was earlier reported to be considering letting go of him but after getting his scoring boots lately the Argentine says he will be spoken to in the near future.
Torres has scored five goals in eight matches and Simeone confirmed he will be in the team when they travel to Espanyol.
“He is doing very well. Tomorrow he’ll play again and the club will make a decision after talking to him in the next few days.” He told Marca.
Torres scored and was sent off in the UEFA Champions League clash against Barcelona and ahead of the return leg on Wednesday, Simeone refused to be drawn into discussing the game.
Simeone’s side trails 1 – 2 and he only wants to focus on the team’s La Liga clash first.
“There will be four days between one game and another, there is time to recover. We have not yet decided the starting eleven but the priority is, without a doubt, tomorrow’s game.”
“The Atletico fans know that tomorrow’s game is important. The expectation is that we give our all until the end of the season, and that’s what we need to do. Then we will accept whatever happens for the others.” He added.
