The VCF Academy product is now part of the first team
Valencia CF academy product Ferran Torres has featured prominently this season for the first team, having made his debut for the senior squad just over 1 year ago. The 18 year old is keen to keep growing at the club and play even more of a role. He gave his thoughts on 2018 in an exclusive interview this week.
How was 2018 for you?
It has been a very fast process -almost overnight. At first it was a bit hard to believe what was happening, but as time went by I settled down and now I belong to this great Valencia CF first team.
Has your dream come true?
Every child, when they come up in the Academy, dreams of wearing the first team shirt one day. I've been lucky enough to do that. It's a wonderful thing, and I'm going to give my all to the end.
It is the reflection of the fact that if you work hard and are consistent, you can play for the first team one day.
What is your analysis of the start of the season?
It's not what we expected and hoped for, but a great club like Valencia CF will overcome the difficulties. We are going to work to turn the situation around.
The Centenary is a very special year
Valencia CF are celebrating 100 years of history; to experience this at 18 years old is amazing
Will you be enjoying a few days off?
Yes. The days off are useful for us to disconnect, recharge our batteries and think about the six months we have left of the season.
