Legendary Spanish striker Fernando Torres has become the coach of Atletico Madrid's reserve team, which plays in the third Spanish league.

Fernando Torres was once an exceptional striker, then after his career ended, he became an excellent bodybuilder, while simultaneously developing his coaching career, which, from what we've seen so far, shows great potential.

In the past three years, Torres led Atletico Madrid's youth team, with which he won the championship and cup last season. During this time, he won two youth titles in total and reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Youth League with Atletico.

Under his leadership, players like Pablo Barrios developed and made it to the first team. All this was enough for Atletico to promote him to a higher position.

Today, Torres became the coach of Atletico's reserve team, which plays in the third Spanish league, marking the first time the legendary striker of Atletico, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Milan has coached at the senior level.

If he successfully tackles the challenge with Atletico Madrid B, Torres will undoubtedly become a serious candidate to succeed Diego Pablo Simeone as the coach of the first team sooner or later.
