The premiere of Fernando Torres as the new coach of Youth A could end up complicating more than it was supposed to be at first. On July 25, the mattress club announced that the ‘Niño’ would be in charge of the military to Juvenil A of the Division of Honor.
The Madrilenian completed several technical bodies of the Academy in its final stretch of last year and the Atlético de Madrid Youth was going to be his first experience as head coach, However, everything indicates that this matter It could end up in court. Miguel Galán, President of the National School of Soccer Coaches of Spain (CENAFE), announced his intention to report this case before the Royal Spanish Football Federation. According to him, Atlético would have presented Torres as head coach of Juvenil A without yet having the Level 3 title, which is necessary to be able to direct in the category.
Zinedine Zidane was sanctioned
Something similar happened to Zinedine Zidane in his day, when he began his time at Real Madrid Castilla without having the proper degree. In that situation, the RFEF decided to sanction him for three months, in addition to Santiago Sánchez Martín and to Real Madrid with a fine of 2000 euros.
In this case, according to Galán, Atlético de Madrid has as first entrant Fernando Torres, who is the one who does not have an adequate degree, since it is assumed that he is still getting it, when in the Madrid Football Federation Ricardo Ortega García appears as first coach of said Youth team.
Can debut finally Torres as coach or will it be sanctioned as in the case of Zidane?
