14. Fernando Torres
Torres was very young when he became a senior player for Atletico Madrid. Much is made of the fact that he captained the team at the age of 19. However, his first two seasons with Madrid were very poor. The team was fighting to get out of the Segunda Division and re-establish themselves as a La Liga force. In short, it was a tough environment for a youthful player.
He scored just seven goals in his first two seasons for Atleti. It may seem harsh to call this terrible because he was so young, but it’s crazy when compared to his later form. However, Torres developed into one of Spain’s greatest ever strikers. He enjoyed success on both the international and club level stages. Finally, he retired with one of the best records in sports.
