Atletico Madrid superkid Torres can't hide Barcelona admiration

Atletico Madrid superkid Oliver Torres admits he admires Barcelona's senior stars.

Torres has been linked with Barca this season.

"The comparisons made don't hurt you as long as you know what you are. I'm not Xavi or Iniesta. I'm light years away from them, but I would like to be like them in the future because they are an example for me", he told ilCatenaccio.es.

"I liked Barça a lot when I was a lad - I enjoyed watching Ronaldinho, he always made me smile. We all had childhood idols and he was mine. That's why I supported Barça. But everything has changed since I came here. Now I wouldn't swap colours for anything."
