“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?"
