Ferran keeps growing at Valencia CF

No player has hit his number of minutes for the first team at just 18 years of age

Breaking into the Spanish top flight like Ferran Torres is not easy. He is steadily progressing at VCF. Marcelino has brought him on in the last five fixtures, so much so that the young forward has played 312 minutes on the field of play.

No 18-year-old player has had more minutes at Valencia CF since 2003-04 with Sissoko’s case. Besides, Marcelino’s side have wrapped up Champions League football for next season over the last five games he has been involved in. Only three members of the squad have been involved across the last five fixtures.

Valencia CF made a strong bet on him when they turned him into a first-team squad member to all effects. Ferran is the only player from his generation to have made his top-tier debut after having played for Spain youth ranks at all levels. He is also the youngest player to hit 300 minutes of game time following the match at Girona, beating the likes of Juan Bernat or Gayà.
