An interview that makes you feel real

Fernando Torres

This is a lovely account of Fernando Torres which reveals a lot about him as a person. Such a short interview, but it has more substance than countless biographies, of footballers, “celebrities” etc, that have been released into the market recently. Shame on some of these people, who are already very rich yet still want to cash in for more.Some of the stuff he told the journalist, like “(mum) taking me to and from training: every day..did it at eight in the morning and again at six in the evening, just to make her son happy”, “Life’s about the little things..sometimes ten minutes with my dogs can mean as much to me as playing in a big game of football”, “places where the people are exploited, where they have next to nothing..are always those who are willing to give the most”, “in these places, devoid of material things and the envy that we obsess about in our world, I’ve found the people are so generous and prepared to share everything”, really do sound like they are coming from a person who is not afraid to open up his heart and share his thoughts isn’t it? What a breath of fresh air, considering that there are so many egoistical footballers or personalities around nowadays. Life will be so much more pleasant if there are more people like Torres, and that wealth can be distributed more evenly around the world…
