Early career
Born in Fuenlabrada, Community of Madrid,[5] Torres became interested in football as a child and joined his first team, Parque 84, at the age of five.[2] His father Jos Torres worked during Torres' childhood, and his mother Flori Sanz travelled daily with him to training sessions.[6] His grandfather was not a passionate football fan, but took pride in being an Atltico Madrid supporter, and Torres inherited his love for the club.[2] Torres started playing football as a goalkeeper, the position his brother played in.[7] When he was seven years old, however, he started playing regularly as a striker in an indoor league for the neighbourhood club, Mario's Holland,[2] using the characters from the animeCaptain Tsubasa as inspiration.[8] Three years later, aged 10, he progressed to an 11-side team, Rayo 13.[9] He scored 55 goals in a season and was one of three Rayo 13

players to earn a trial with Atltico.[9] He impressed the scouts and joined the club's youth system at the age of 11 in 1995.[9]

Club career
Atltico Madrid

After progressing through the ranks, Torres won his first important youth title in 1998.[9] Atltico sent an under15 team to compete in the Nike Cup, in Spain and Europe, to play against youth teams from other clubs; Atltico won the tournament.[9][11] He was later voted the best player in Europe for the age group.[11] In 1999, at the age of 15, Torres signed his first professional contract with Atltico.[9] He spent his first year playing in the youth team and moved onto the participating in the Honor Division when he was 16.[12] The 200001 season had started badly, as Torres suffered from a cracked shinbone which kept him out until December. [12] Torres trained with the first team to get prepared for pre-season, but eventually made his debut for the team on 27 May 2001, at Vicente Caldern, against CD Legans.[12] A week later, he scored his first goal for the club against Albacete Balompi and the season finished with Atltico narrowly missing out on promotion to La Liga.[12] Atltico were promoted to La Liga at the end of the 200102 season, although Torres did not perform well in the season, as he netted only six times in 36 appearances in the Segunda Divisin.[13] Torres' first season in La Liga, 200203, was better, however, as he scored 13 goals in 29 appearances, with Atltico finishing in 11th place.[12][13] In the 200304 season, his second in La Liga, Torres made further strides, scoring 19 league goals in 35 appearances,[13] meaning he finished as joint third highest scorer in the league.[14] At the age of 19, Torres

was named Atltico's captain.[11] Atltico narrowly missed out on qualification for the UEFA Cup, but by finishing in seventh place in the 200304 season, they qualified for the 2004 UEFA Intertoto Cup, giving Torres a first taste of a competition at the European level.[15] He scored two goals in the two fourth round matches against OFK Beograd, with one coming in each leg.[15]Atltico reached the Final, but lost 31 on a penalty shoot-out to Villarreal CF following a 22 draw on aggregate.[15] FA Premier League champions Chelsea were believed to be interested in signing Torres during the summer of 2005, but Atltico president Enrique Cerezo said that they had "no chance" of signing him.[16] Cerezo later said in January 2006 that the club was willing to listen to offers for Torres, and Torres claimed Newcastle United of the FA Premier League had made a bid to sign him in March.[17][18] He stated after the 2006 FIFA World Cup that he had turned down an offer to join Chelsea at the end of the 200506 season.[19] Torres scored 14 league goals in the 200607 season.[13] The English media reported that he was the main transfer target of Premier LeagueLiverpool,[20] but Cerezo stated "We've received no offer from Liverpool or any other club or player".[21] However, a few days later, new reports suggested Atltico had agreed a deal with Liverpool for Torres; the fee was rumoured to be 25 million with Luis Garca moving to Atltico in a separate transfer deal.[22] On 30 June, Atltico announced a deal to sign Diego Forln from Villarreal, in what was seen as a move to replace Torres before his departure became official. [23] On 2 July, it was reported that Torres had cut short a vacation to fly back to Madrid to finalise the move to Liverpool. [24] The following day, Torres passed a medical at Liverpool's Melwood training ground.[25] He held a press conference in Madrid on 4 July to bid farewell to the Atltico fans, before completing his move to Liverpool on a six-year contract.[25] The transfer fee was the highest in Liverpool's history.[23] In March 2008, manager Rafael Bentez stated in an interview with The Times that Torres was acquired for around 20 million, although this figure takes into account Garca's move to Atltico.[26]

Liverpool

He was named the Premier League Player of the Month for February 2008,[32] during which he scored four goals in four appearances, including a hat-trick against Middlesbrough on 23 February 2008.[33] This hat-trick and another in a 40 victory over West Ham United on 5 March 2008 meant he became the first Liverpool player since Jack Balmer in November 1946 to score a hat-trick in successive home matches.[34] Later in March, after he scored a 47th minute header against Reading at Anfield, becoming the first Liverpool player since Robbie Fowler in the 199596 season campaign to score 20 league goals in a season.[35] In April, he scored another Champions League goal, this time against Arsenal in the quarter-final second leg, as Liverpool advanced to the semi-final.[36] This goal took him onto 29 goals for the 200708 season in all competitions,[33] eclipsing Michael Owen's personal record for goals in a season.[37] On 11 April 2008, it was announced Torres had made a six-man shortlist for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award,[38] which was eventually won by Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United.[39] The Spanish international was also nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year Award, which was won by Cesc Fbregas of Arsenal and was named in the PFA Team of the Year.[39] In May, he finished second to Ronaldo for the FWA Footballer of the Yearaward.[40] On 4 May 2008, Torres scored a 57th minute winner against Manchester City, which equalled the consecutive Anfield league goal record of eight games set by Roger Hunt.[41] After scoring his 24th league goal in the final game of the season, a 20 win against Tottenham Hotspur, he set a new record for the most prolific foreign goal scorer in a debut season in England, eclipsing Ruud van Nistelrooy's 23 goals.[33][42] He ended the season in joint second place with Emmanuel Adebayor in the race for the Premier League golden boot.[43]Torres was subject to media speculation that Chelsea were willing to pay 50 million to sign him but Torres responded by

saying it would be "many years" before he left Liverpool.[44][45] Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicksalso negated the idea of a transfer, saying he would not allow Torres to leave the club at any price.[46]

[55] He was named in the FIFPro World XI team for the 200708 season on 27 October 2008.[56]

Torres made his return for Liverpool on 8 November 2008 after coming on as a 72nd minute substitute in a 30 victory against West Bromwich Albion (West Brom).[57] He said he would be interested in returning to former club Atltico eventually, saying "I don't know if I will retire there, but I would like to go back and finish some things that are left to do."[58] He was ruled out of action for two to three weeks following Liverpool's 10 victory over Marseille in the Champions League in November, where he picked up a hamstring strain,[59] which was later extended to at least four weeks by specialists.[60] He was named on the shortlist for the FIFA World Player of the Year award in December,[61] and eventually came in third place behind Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.[62] Torres returned to action on 3 January 2009 as a substitute with a goal in the 20 win over Preston North End; his first in the FA Cup.[63] He scored two late goals for Liverpool to secure a 20 victory over Chelsea on 1 February 2009.[64] Despite having spent a year and a half at the club, Torres was chosen as number 50 in The Times's list of "The 50 greatest Liverpool players", reinforcing the impact he had made at Liverpool in such a short period of time.[65] Torres faced his old rivals Real Madrid on 10 March 2009 in the Champions League last 16 and due to an ankle injury, he had a painkilling injection before the game to enable him to play.[66] He scored the first goal of the game, which ended as a 40 victory, meaning Liverpool progressed to the quarter-finals 50 on aggregate.[67] Four days later he lined up against Manchester United at Old Trafford and he scored the equaliser in a game that finished as a 41 victory.[68] He was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the second season running in April 2009.[69] Torres scored his 50th goal for Liverpool on 24 May 2009 against Tottenham on the final day of the 200809 season, which was his 84th appearance.[70]

When it came we knew he would score."[78] Torres was named in the FIFPro World XI for the second successive season in December 2009.[79] His stoppage-time winning goal against Aston Villa on 29 December 2009 made him the fastest Liverpool player ever to score 50 league goals.[80] He was substituted on 65 minutes in a 11 draw with Birmingham City on 4 April 2010, which Bentez justified by saying Torres was "exhausted".[81] Torres made his last appearance of the season scoring twice in a 41 victory over S.L. Benfica in the Europa League on 8 April,[82] and it was announced on 18 April 2010 that he would miss the rest of the season to undergo knee surgery.[83] This meant that Torres finished the season with 22 goals in 32 games in all competitions, finishing as Liverpool's top scorer for the second time.[82]

[84] Hodgson dismissed reports Torres was set to leave Liverpool by saying "He has told us that he is looking forward to Monday, to getting back to work and looking forward to playing for Liverpool next season. That is what I know so other reports, I would suggest, are erroneous."[85] Torres stated his commitment to Liverpool on 3 August, saying "My commitment and loyalty to the club and to the fans is the same as it was on my first day when I signed."[86]

Sukan
Daripada Wikipedia, ensiklopedia bebas.

Sukan terdiri daripada aktiviti fizikal yang dilakukan untuk pelbagai tujuan untuk pertandingan, keseronokan, pembangunan, kemahiran, kecemerlangan, dan sebagainya. Perbezaan tujuan inilah yang membezakan sifat sesuatu sukan itu. Misalnya, berenang secara bersaingan di hadapan ribuan penonton akan dikira sebagai sukan tetapi berenang bersendirian di kolam atau laut dilihat sebagai aktiviti rekreasi.

Terdapat pelbagai jenis sukan, dan kebanyakannya mengorbankan masa, wang, dan keinginan manusia sama ada sebagai peserta atau pun sebagai penonton.
