Simeone: Torres will always be a Rojiblancos great.


Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has hailed striker Fernando Torres, saying he will still be a Rojiblancos legend even if he won't be staying at the club beyond the end of the campaign.

According to widespread reports the 31-year-old's loan-move from AC Milan won't be extended beyond the summer.

“There is no Simeone/Torres divide among the Atleti fans now,” said the Atleti boss. “They love us both unconditionally. What the fans want is for Atletico to win.

“The supporters didn’t stop loving Luis Aragones when he went. The same is true for Kiko, and now he’s retired. Idols like Fernando will be loved forever.”
