The 37-year-old stepped away from his position in February because of some personal reasons, but he revealed that he would return before the beginning of the 2021-22 season.

Los Rojiblancos have now released an official statement that indicates Torres will retake charge of their Juvenil A in the upcoming month.

The former striker is admired by fans at Atletico, after finding the back of the net 82 times in La Liga during five seasons before making a move to Liverpool in 2007.

He came back to Diego Simeone’s side on a loan deal in 2014 from Chelsea and netted another 27 goals, before hanging up his boots in 2019 with Japanese club Sagan Tosu.
