Qatar’s DOHA (AP) — Ferran Torres of Spain is not just coached by Luis Enrique. They won’t have any issues at the World Cup despite the fact that he is also the father of the Barcelona player’s girlfriend.
Torres says he and the coach have done a good job of separating work and family while dating Sira Martnez, the 20-year-old daughter of Luis Enrique.
The 22-year-old Torres said Sunday in Qatar, where Spain will play in Group E, “The coach and I are being able to separate when we are family and when we are coach and player.”
Although they haven’t kept their relationship a secret, the forward hasn’t talked about it much in public.
Torres advised, “You have to deal with it naturally.” We have handled it extremely well, but it is what it is.
In one of his appearances as a Twitch streamer, Luis Enrique brought up Torres’ relationship with his daughter. Luis Enrique, a former midfielder for Barcelona and Spain’s national team, paused for a moment before responding, laughing, when asked which player he thought played the game the most like him. Ferran Torres is here. If I don’t, my daughter will find me and lop off my head.
When Luis Enrique cracked the joke, Torres made it clear that he was watching the stream.
One of the many young players Luis Enrique chose for Spain’s reorganized team is Torres. Although Xavi Hernández’s Barcelona hasn’t given him many playing time opportunities, he started both of Spain’s September Nations League games. Additionally, last week’s World Cup warm-up match against Jordan saw him come off the bench.
Although Luis Enrique only added lvaro Morata to his squad as a striker, Torres can also play at the top of the attack at the striker position.
Torres said, “We have eight forwards, which helps. I think good performances in Qatar may help my case at the club level with Barcelona.” “I and many other players may use the World Cup as a trampoline,” said the player.
After taking home the World Cup trophy for the first time in 2010 in South Africa, Spain is attempting to win a second championship. On Wednesday against Costa Rica, the team will play its first game in Qatar. The team will next play Japan and Germany.
