After excelling at the Camp Nou this season, scoring 12 goals in 44 games, he has now been called for the Spain World Cup team.

And in response to the question of which Spanish player is his extension on the pitch, the manager said: “that’s very easy – It’s Mr Ferran Torres – otherwise my daughter will come after me and chop off my head.”

Ferran Torres, Sira Martinez’s partner, a professional showjumper in Barcelona, responded to the question of whether he felt any pressure to play for Martinez’s father by saying: “Not at all.

“I think the coach and I, we know how to differentiate between when it’s family and when we are manager and player.”

“I think we have to get on with it in a natural way, just that and we’re getting along fine.”

The winger has also played for Spain’s national team this year, appearing in nine games and tallying one goal. On Wednesday against Costa Rica, he is sure to make an impact.

Spain will compete against Germany and Japan in a difficult group, and they will have to put up a fight to win.

Torres acknowledged that they are a youthful team, but they are nonetheless focused on defeating Costa Rica and moving on in the World Cup.

“When you play against a team that is closed it’s always harder,” he said. “They (Costa Rica) play in a very compact way. It will be hard.”

“We are a team with a lot ahead of us, we are very young.”

“The young ones, we are very hungry, very ambitious and keen to show off our football.”

While Torres was at Manchester City, he started a long-distance relationship with Sira Martinez; the two currently share a home in Barcelona.

When asked on his live Twitch stream who Vicente del Bosque’s extension on the field was, Luis Enrique replied that it is Sergio Busquets. While he admitted that Torres is his own extension on the pitch.

“If I have to choose who is my extension on the pitch, I would say Ferran, because if not, my daughter kills me,” he scoffed.

Ferran Torres ended up being the person selected for the news conference the next day. Hence, he was taken up on his manager’s extension comment. Torres said;

“I don’t take it as added pressure, we know that the coach is a joker and he simply made a joke while he was live.”

Later, he was questioned how he distinguished between Luis Enrique’s roles as the national team coach and the father of his girlfriend.

“The coach and I know how to differentiate when he is family and when he is a coach and I a player. We deal with it naturally”, he said.

It is undoubtedly a tightrope that few people would dare to tread, and even fewer with a man like Luis Enrique who does not put up with fools well enough. Ferran Torres is leaving the dream.
