Ferran Torres The day he regained his property, he was once again the protagonist. The Foios striker, positioned on the right wing, fought for every ball and moved diagonally to offer himself in attacking positions. The “Shark”, who concluded his performance with a magnificent free-kick goal, received a standing ovation in Montjuïc.
Nobody has scored a direct free kick since Messi’s last time more than two years ago. “I didn’t know, they told me after the game. I’m glad it was me.” Asked if he was confident about being the official thrower, he replied: “I think Robert (Lewandowski) will want to throw the next one, but those are decisions of the game.” And he admitted between laughs, that reality wasn’t as planned: “My idea was to throw the free kick over the barrier, it went a little wrong but it went in, that’s the most important thing.”
And he responded to Xavi’s praise at the press conference: “It’s a motivation to keep working, I’m very calm mentally, and in the end there’s a lot that no one sees and in the end it all pays off.” “We’re a team, that has made a qualitative leap with the new additions, we are working very well and this year we will have a more consolidated team.”
