Surprising how Former Liverpool Striker Torres Announces Sensational Return to Football At Age of 37
Former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has announced he is coming out of retirement, two years after hanging his boots.
Torres called it quits from football in 2019 after a stint with Japanese side Sagan Tosu. In recent months, however, the Spaniard has undergone a superb body transformation and has taken up boxing on the side. His latest post on
Instagram strongly suggested he was ready to dust off his boots and get back to the football pitch once again.

He rose through the Atletico Madrid youth system before joining Liverpool in 2007 where he enjoyed arguably his
most prolific time as a striker. For the Reds, he scored 81 goals in 142 appearances in four seasons before
completing a controversial £50m move to rivals Chelsea in 2011. He has over 100 caps for the Spain national team.

During his playing years, the legendary forward had a lean and more slender body and was not known for strength. Torres shared photos of his new look while appearing for a commercial for Southeast Asian website, AW8.
