Fernando Torres Twitter reacts to El Nino's retirement from professional football

Fernando Torres, who is known for his football careers at Liverpool, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, has announced his retirement from the game.

Torres left Atletico last summer to play in the J. League after returning to his boyhood club in 2015.

The 35-year-old revealed on social media that he would be hanging up his boots after a glittering 18-year career.

Torres made just over 700 appearances in his career, scoring 252 goals and setting up 73 more.

"Next Sunday, the 23rd at 10:00AM, local time in Japan, I will have a press conference in Tokyo to explain all the details".

Fernando Torres has scored some lovely goals in Japan! He netted the winning goal for Spain during his side's final match against Germany in the 2008 European Championship before guiding the national team to their maiden World Cup glory in 2010.

The Saturday "hustings" was the first of more than a dozen such party meetings set to take place across Britain in coming days. She then was reportedly heard yelling that Johnson, nicknamed BoJo, had ruined a sofa by spilling red wine onto it.

In 2007 he became Liverpool's record transfer in a deal reportedly worth £20million, when Luis Garcia's move the other way was taken into account, and he made a huge impact with the Reds, scoring 24 goals as he took the Premier League by storm in his debut campaign.

In 110 games for Spain, he scored the victor in Euro 2008 and was on target in their Euro 2012 final win.

Torres helped to carry Liverpool close to title glory, hitting 81 goals in 142 outings, before Chelsea finally got their man in January 2011.

Although never the same ruthless striker as in his Liverpool days, Torres still lifted the FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League with the Blues.

After a short loan spell at AC Milan, Atletico Madrid came swooping in to bring Torres back to the Spanish capital.
