And as time goes by and you feel that you are better prepared, then you want to take on big challenges, experience a changing environment,” Ferran told reporters. “Yes, I think I’m ready to make these changes. On the inside, I always feel that I am the top and that I want to be the top, and I work to be the best.
Torres is learning English
“If you don’t believe that you are the best, then no one will ever believe that you are”. Ahead of the move to the side of Pep Guardiola, Ferran has confirmed that he is learning English. “Yes, you should always learn languages, because you never know where football will take you tomorrow. But above all, I am studying English, because English is necessary for every part of the world you are in,” he noted. Ferran went through Valencia’s academy and confessed that he is proud to have played for their first team. “I remember putting on my shirt and then going to the bathroom looking at myself in an almost in a daze,” the 20-year-old said.
“I was wearing a shirt and underwear, and I just looked at the shirt and said to myself, ‘What am I doing here? How did I get here? It was an extraordinary moment. In the end, it was the team from my land and the team that gave me everything.”
