After a period where the sense of a footballing salvation far evaded the grasp of Ferran Torres, the Spaniard managed to display a performance for the ages. Completing a sensational number of successful dribbles alongside his plethora of well-calculated decisions during the game, it was a game he reflected a lot of thought upon.

Completing as many as 10 successful dribbles, a tally no one since Andres Iniesta himself managed to compete with back in 2011 against Athletic Bilbao, the player was mesmerizing to watch at times.

While this new iteration of Ferran Torres with this evolved playstyle may not be as direct of a goal threat as he may have been priorly, it arguably provides a much more effective player holistically. Breezing past opponents seemingly effortlessly, and then dispatching passes that had the capability of being utilized to much devastating effects, the new style of play was benefitting Barcelona quite orthodoxly.

Following the match against Cadiz CF, the player had the following to say to the press informally, according to “LaVanguardia”: “I became obsessed with the goals. I just wanted to score. Normally I have also been successful in front of goal, but I had a bad run and didn’t know how to manage it” as well as providing a rather detailed experience of his since quite a while with a psychologist as well.

According to the ex-Manchester City man, the aid of this professional helped him a lot ultimately. The player has since figured out that his utility to this team lies beyond just needing to score goals or being directly involved in a goal.

According to recent reports, Ferran Torres remains a serious contender to be amongst those that end up taking the front stage amongst the starting eleven that Xavi Hernandez ends up choosing to field against Manchester United at Old Trafford come Thursday.

With both good cause and a lack of options simultaneously, the player has decided to hit a good strike at a very convenient time for FC Barcelona, and here’s to hoping it ends up being fruitful for the Catalans in the long run.
