Martin O’Neill Roasts Fernando Torres After Watching Him Against Leicester

Martin O’Neill Roasts Fernando Torres After Watching Him Against Leicester

Martin O’Neill believes Atletico Madrid will never be a prolific team if they continue to play with Fernando Torres in their team.

The Irish manager was in the BT Sport studio for their coverage of Leicester against Atletico in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

He’s usually good value with his honest opinions on the game, but he’s undoubtedly irked Liverpool fans tonight with his criticism of Torres.

The former Anfield man played 75 minutes of this evening’s game at the Vicente Calderon, failing to get on the scoresheet in a 1-0 win for the Spaniards.

And after watching him, O’Neill roasted Torres – claiming Atletico will never be prolific as long as he’s in the team.

O’Neill, via BT Sport, said: “Atletico Madrid are never going to be a prolific goal scoring side when they have Fernando Torres in their team”

We’re O’Neill fans – but is he serious with that?

The Spaniard has played for Liverpool and Chelsea in his career, winning multiple major trophies, as well as winning two European Championships and a World Cup with Spain.

In his time at Liverpool, he scored 81 goals in 142 games and has a decent 25 in 104 record for Atletico since returning to the team he started his career with.

But is O’Neill actually right? Is Torres a detriment to Atletico?
