Ahead of Barcelona’s UCL fixture and the injury pandemic, Ferran is very confident to lead the team’s attack to victory Amidst a Youthful Surge.
23-year-old Spanish forward Ferran Torres is poised to assume a pivotal role in Barcelona’s upcoming challenges.
With crucial fixtures against Shakhtar Donetsk in the UCL and the iconic El Clásico on the horizon, Torres has declared readiness to shoulder attacking responsibilities for his club.
He acknowledges the feeling of being an “old man” at Barcelona which can be juxtaposed with the emergence of teenage talents like Lamine Yamal and Marc Guiu, who have captured the spotlight. He said:
“I am prepared to step up and take more responsibility in attack. I feel like an old man,”
“I try to give advice to these players who are very strong and are establishing themselves in starting positions. A lot of pressure is on them, but they should handle it well. They have the potential.” He added.
Barcelona’s head coach, Xavi Hernandez, is expected to field Torres in the attack tonight, particularly with the absences of Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha.
Marc Guiu, who recently had a standout performance against Athletic Bilbao, is also likely to see some minutes on the pitch.
Regarding the young talents, Torres expressed his belief in the team, having witnessed his goal-scoring prowess during training sessions.
Tonight, Torres is expected to spearhead Barcelona’s offensive efforts, aiming to secure another victory in the competitive UCL group stage.
Looking ahead, Barcelona faces their arch-rivals, Real Madrid, over the weekend.
With just a single point separating the two giants at the top of the La Liga table, Barcelona is fervently hoping for a triumph that would propel them into the lead and assert their dominance in Spanish football.
