“There’s nothing I could even think about saying. They should and will root for their team to win on Friday because the club is above anyone, ever. I owe everything to them, for all they’ve taught me, for always staying by my side. They’ve never turned their backs on me, not when I was there, not when I left and not now that we’re still apart. I am so unbelievably lucky to still have their love.”
— Fernando Torres, when asked "Is there anything you would like to say to the Atlético supporters who’re also your supporters?"
"What was the whole wide world but a place for people to yearn for their heart's impossible desires, for those desires to become entrenched in defiance of logic, plausibility, and even the passage of time, as eternal as polished marble.”
