Fernando Torres joined Atletico Madrid when he was 11-years-old. He spent 12 years there before signing for Liverpool and then Chelsea.
“When I was born in Madrid I was not a Liverpool fan or a Chelsea fan,” he said when he was a Chelsea player. “I was only an Atletico Madrid fan. I still am. Maybe it’s the only badge I will kiss if I have to kiss one.”
From Chelsea he signed for AC Milan, who loaned him back to Atletico in the 2014-15 season. At his unveiling, he kissed the badge.
