Liverpool fans were quick to spot a ‘jacked’ Fernando Torres sporting a ‘jacked’ physique on the Atletico Madrid touchline when Atleti’s U19s side took on Liverpool U19s
Football fans spotted a ‘jacked’ Fernando Torres sporting his new physique in Atletico Madrid U19s clash with Liverpool U19 on Tuesday afternoon.
The Reds were beaten 2-0 at the Centro Deportivo Wanda Alcala de Henares as the youth sides played a warm-up to Tuesday evening’s main event.
But Reds fans were quick to notice Fernando Torres among the Atleti bench, where he works as part of the coaching staff.
Torres burst onto the scene as a fresh-faced youngster at Atleti before he moved onto Liverpool in 2007.
And the El Nino that arrived on Merseyside looks drastically different to the one stood in the technical area.
“Man, look at how jacked Torres is now,” one fan tweeted after seeing Torres on the touchline.
Another added: “Imagine Torres in his prime with this build. He would have tore it all up better than he did.”
“Wouldn’t like to have to defend against Torres in a Charity Match,” a third tweeted.
“Fernando Torres’ transformation is massive,” a fourth observed before adding a fire emoji.

Torres has been sporting his new look since he returned to Atletico Madrid in a coaching role.
But the latest images of the former talisman come just days after a recently retired Samir Nasri sported a fuller figure at a charity match in France.
Nasri, who only announced his retirement at the start of October, was appearing for a ‘Legends of Marseille’ side.
The Frenchman had spent the better part of a year without a team after leaving Belgian side Anderlecht.
Torres returned to Atletico Madrid after a disastrous spell at Chelsea.
The former Liverpool man was appointed as head coach of the U19s side in July.
