Man City’s Ferran Torres apologizes for comments about Robert Lewandowski.

Ferran Torres has moved to interpret his remarks about Robert Lewandowski when he said that Spain’s defenders would ‘eat’ the Polish striker.

Speaking ahead of Spain’s goalless draw with Poland, Manchester City winger Torres had been questioned if he was worried about facing the prolific Bayern Munich striker.

Torres’ reply was a peculiar one, where he said: “No, he does not worry us. Our central defenders will eat Lewandowski.”

However, Torres did maintain that Lewandowski is an idol, as he said: “Yes. He has been a benchmark in terms of work, consistency and about knowing what you want.“

After Spain stopped Lewandowski from scoring, they saw his threat as he scored an excellent goal against Sweden, but Poland still finished bottom of their Euro 2020 group.

After two goalless draws, Spain eventually discovered their scoring touch with a 5-0 win over Slovakia, which highlighted a lovely flicked goal from Torres.


That was enough to reserve their place in the last 16. And since then Torres has been questioned about the Lewandowski comments, where he apologized for any offense caused.

He said: “I respect Lewandowski and all the forwards very much. He is a reference for me. If I offended someone I want to apologize.”

Torres also handled questions on the mindset in the Spain camp going into a last-16 clash with Croatia, having closed second in their group behind Sweden.

“The team is calm and working well, trying to achieve the objectives,” he added.

“The goal is a matter of time and in the end everything will pay off. We are calm from day one because we were working well and the reward had to come. We have to insist because on Monday we have a great final.

“It is going to be a very difficult match against the world runners-up. We are aware that we will have to work hard and from there try to win.”

“In a Euro Cup you have to take penalties, but it is not something that worries us because we are working on it and we will surely get them soon.”
