Torres: El Nino: My Story (Hardcover)
by Fernando Torres

This is a must-have book for fans of Fernando Torres. By reading this, Fernando Torres will tell you what he has been through until he becomes the most dangerous striker of a modern day football. From the streets besides Atletico’s Vicente Calderon stadium to Anfiled to European Championships winner, the book gives you a good insight into his background, the modern football he works with and the difficulties of moving from Spain to Britain. This book is not an autobiography like Carragher and Gerrard but an illustrated book with beautiful images and nice descriptions. Make sure you order the hardcover version. Available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.I must say it is worth the price.

About Fernando Torres.

“At the age of 25, Spain-s Fernando Torres has already established himself as one of the Liverpool greats and a proud wearer of the fabled No 9 shirt. His first book, framed within 25 pivotal themes of his life, provides a captivating illustrated story of his career to date, alongside revealing insights into his formative years in Madrid, as a child football prodigy and lifelong fan of local club Atletico. Nicknamed -El Nino- (The Kid), Torres opens up about life on the streets besides Atletico-s Vicente Calderon stadium, signing for the club at aged 15 and appointed club captain by 19, becoming, as one local journalist put it, -one part folk hero, one part native son, one part messiah.- When Liverpool broke their club transfer record to bring Torres to Anfield in July 2007, it proved the turning point in his career. Competing in the goldfish bowl of the English Premier League, settling into the North West and playing alongside Liverpool heroes like Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, in the company of Spanish team-mates Pepe Reina, Xavi Alonso and Albert Rieira, and performing in front of the Kop who quickly adopted him as one of their own - Torres describes what it means to him to play on one of the greatest stages in world football, and compares and contrasts life in Spain with his new career in England. Away from the football, Torres talks about life out of the spotlight with his family and close friends, and what inspires and motivates him.” From Amazon.com
