Ferran Torres is ready to prove himself at Barcelona after manager Xavi backs him to succeed
Ferran Torres admits to having a “bottomless pit” of struggles. However, he is committed to prove doubters wrong.
A ‘bottomless pit’ of struggles is over for Ferran Torres!
Ferran Torres came to Barcelona on a €55million (£46.3m) deal in December 2021 but has had problems adjusting to life at Barcelona.
He told reporters: “I felt that I had fallen into a bottomless pit. I had never collapsed so much. I promised Xavi that I would be me again.
“I put myself in the hands of a psychologist. I usually go once or twice a week. My family also helped me, I have a very healthy environment.
“I have learnt not to be so obsessed with goals. I have learned to be happy, to face things. I have had a bad time, but it has been a great opportunity to get to know myself.”
Ferran Torres acknowledged Bosquets’ help in him adapting to Barcelona’s style as well as Barca president Joan Laporta.
“I have learnt not to be so obsessed with goals.“
“The president is very close with everyone. All of my team-mates have helped me,” he added. “Busquets told me that I should be calm. That the reward would end up coming.”
“I want to succeed at Barcelona, I see myself here for many years,” he continued. “I’m not to blame for the price they wanted to pay for me.
“I wanted to come because this is Barca and you can’t say no.
“Xavi called me several times. He carries Barca in his veins and has won everything.”
Ferran Torres will be looking to repay Xavi at Old Trafford when Barcelona will face Manchester United on Thursday.
“We will have to run like there is no tomorrow. It will be a game of patience and knowing how to suffer,” he said.
“The Premier League is a very physical league, but we have a lot of talent and that’s also important. We’re going with everything and above all with young people ready to take on the world.”
