Andrés Iniesta penned an emotional letter to Fernando Torres as the two prepared to face one another a final time in the Sagan Tosu striker's last professional match.

"I wish we could go back to those days. knowing you could run behind defenders, and I could find you with passes, and you turning all my bad passes into good passes". Here we are both, about to play your last game as a professional.

The former Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea forward has ended his playing days with Sagan Tosu in Japan at the age of 35, and made his farewell appearance in a 6-1 defeat to Vissel Kobe - a side which ironically featured his former colleagues Andres Iniesta and David Villa.

Iniesta and Torres have been friends since they played together for Spain's youth teams, with Torres writing on a shirt for Iniesta that someday they would "win the World Cup together". It is as if life, capricious her, had brought us to Japan to say goodbye.

With 24 points, Sagan Tosu is placed 16th out of 18 teams in the points table, while Vissel is one spot higher with two more points.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Patrice Evra has retired from football to become a coach after spending 20 years active years in the game that has brought him fame and fortune. Well, you will forever be El Niño.

And the former Barcelona midfielder has paid tribute to his old worldwide colleague ahead of that fixture. Also, to rival fans because you made me a better player. It has taken us to all corners of the world. "Although, it is true, there is no greater treasure than your friendship, Fernando".

Grousbeck, who was born in MA , has owned the Celtics since 2002, when he purchased the team along with Harold Irving Grousbeck. The property is now in escrow, so its not a done deal yet, but the website reports that both sides are confident.

Torres signed for Liverpool in the summer of 2007 and duly established himself as one of the game's premier forwards during his three-and-a-half year Anfield career.

He joined Chelsea in 2011 and was part of the golden generation that inspired the Blues to Champions League glory seven years ago.

He also won the FA Cup and scored in their 2-1 win against Benfica in the Europa League final in 2013.

"But it's not just another one, it's your last game, who knew?"

He finished on the losing side as Atletico lost the 2016 Champions League final to Real Madrid, but won a second Europa League in 2018 - his final appearance before moving to Japan.

The crowning moment in Fernando Torres' career: Winning the 2010 World Cup with Spain in South Africa.
