Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has admitted that Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid is "the game of his life".
The former Chelsea marksman who has won the World Cup and two European Championships with Spain and a champions league title with the English club is looking for revenge.
Real Madrid defeated Atletico Madrid in 2014 in Lisbon and Torres and his teammates are poised to upset an 11 European glory for their city rivals.
"Tomorrow [Saturday] is the game of my life, without doubt," said Torres. "To me it means everything. Everything you dream when you're a kid, I have the chance tomorrow to make this dream come true.
"I've played for great teams, and won many things, but this one is special, it is different, it's what I wanted when I was a kid."
Torres left Atletico for Liverpool but has returned on loan from AC Milan, having had torrid times at Chelsea and the Italian club.
The 32-yearold has scored 12 goals in 43 appearances this season and definitely would be grateful for his boyhood team for the opportunity.
He said: "I had a chance to come back to the club, they gave me the chance to come back and fight for what I wanted.
He sounds like owing Atletico a lot and there is no way to reward them than ensure Real Madrid are beaten.
