Ferran Torres Embraces the Phoenix Spirit With New Back Tattoo

Ferran Torres Embraces the Phoenix Spirit With New Back Tattoo

FC Barcelona player Ferran Torres got a new tattoo with a large phoenix on his upper back.

In Greek mythology, the Phoenix is a bird that is born again from its ashes. It is commonly believed to be a symbol of a new beginning or resurrection.

Printed below the tattoo is a motivational quote: “You try, you make mistakes, you get up. This message might be deeply related to his current form, his career and mentality.

What does Torres’ back tattoo mean?

It seems that Ferran Torres has made up his mind to make the fans change their mind about him and this is reflected by his new tattoo.

The player has received criticism for his poor finishing. Due to his inability to convert chances into goals there was a lot of speculation about the 23 year old’s future and he was even linked with an exit from FC Barcelona.

He has silenced his critics with dedication, hard work and by finding the back of the net.

In the pre-season, the Barca player scored four times in four games and he is looking forward to scoring more goals. It looks like he has become an upgraded version of himself at the right moment.

The former Manchester City player did not get game time in the opening La Liga fixture against Getafe, but he made an impression as a substitute by netting a goal in the second match against Cadiz.

The Blaugrana’s new number 7 proved his finishing skills when he scored in a 1v1 situation against Cadiz keeper Ledesma.

The club are going through a problem with their star striker Robert Lewandowski struggling to score as many goals as needed from him.

Furthermore, with the departure of French winger Ousmane Dembele for Paris Saint-Germain, Torres will have an opportunity to impress club manager Xavi.

Is a comeback on the horizon?

Torres turned up in his best physical shape for the pre-season and also performed well on the US tour.

It has been reported that Torres is pushing himself and has been spending extra hours in training to be at his best when the manager needs him.

The Spaniard is doing double sessions regularly since the season has started. Whenever the squad is scheduled for training in the afternoon, Ferran comes in the morning and takes individual training sessions, while also turning up for every voluntary practice session in the new season.

The Barcelona coaching team is very happy with the progress that Ferran Torres has made so far in this campaign. Ferran is an example.

His manager Xavi Hernandez praised him: “Whether he comes on for 10 minutes, 30 minutes or as a starter, he always gives 100 percent”.

Ferran Torres, as a player looks calm and confident in his ability and it seems that he is making a comeback just like the phoenix in his back tattoo.
