Ferran torres He scores in every competition he plays. This season he has played four … and scored in all four. It does not fail. That without counting on the Spanish team, where of course they also saw goal in the Nations League, both in September and November. The last example happened this Saturday afternoon, in injury time of Manchester City’s victory against Cheltenham, in the FA Cup, where the Pep Guardiola they were imposed by 1-3. Ferran Torres finished off a death pass in the small area and he opened his locker in the competition in the same way that he has done in all the ones he has played as a ‘citizen’ footballer.
