He’s been developing slowly but surely, and has now gone from the academy, where he was part of Ricky Alonso’s coaching staff, to Atletico Madrid B, where he’s been working since Wednesday according to a report in Marca.

Torres’ first game with the side will be this afternoon against Poblense, a tie that could be the beginning of a fruitful if unexpected coaching career for El Nino at Los Rojiblancos, the club that’s always been his club.
