Virginia Torrecilla renewed with Atlético for until 2022. The Mallorcan will continue one more rojiblanca season after a blank year. In the middle of the center they detected a brain tumor in the middle of a pandemic for which she had to be operated on and has been fighting the disease all the year that she seems to have already overcome.
In fact, Torrecilla returned to training at the end of the course. A solo job to gradually recover muscle tone after undergoing chemotherapy for most of the year. Little by little, Virginia wants to be her old self and Atlético, after a very difficult year for the player, has wanted to show her confidence with the renewal.
“It is a privilege to continue here”
After its renewal, Torrecilla spoke with the club’s media: “For me it is a privilege to continue here and I am very happy about it. For me, Atlético is my home and I feel very good here. I want to thank everyone for the support you have given me”. The international was enthusiastic about her return to the pitch: “I really want to go back to the pitch, share a dressing room with my teammates and wear these colors again”. Something that she will do little by little because, although she has started to work, she still has steps to regain muscle tone, although the important thing is that she is clean as she herself acknowledged. “Hopefully I can retire at Atlético de Madrid,” he concluded.
