Torres suffered the indignity of scoring an own goal in Atletico's La Liga clash with Malaga.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Sat, Apr 11, 2015 18:30 BST
Former Chelsea and AC Milan striker Fernando Torres has scored four goals in 16 appearances for Atletico Madrid this season - but he certainly won't be wanting to claim this one.
The Spaniard's attempted clearance against Malaga saw him put the ball into his own net in a rather unfortunate sequence of events for Atletico in their La Liga clash.
Having returned to Vicente Calderon in January, the 31-year-old has found goals difficult to come by and still struggles to shake off the internet memes and trolling which surrounded his spell with Chelsea.
Here's how Twitter reacted to Torres' ownRead More »from Ex-Chelsea striker Fernando Torres scores first ever career own goal.. and Twitter reacts

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo showed that he hasn't lost his touch when it comes to set pieces after scoring a free-kick against Eibar on Saturday.
The 30-year-old Ballon d'Or winner was once regarded as the best free-kick taker in world football but had since failed to score in 56 attempts for club and country.
Ronaldo's last free-kick goal was against Bayern Munich in last season's Champions League semi-final on 29 April 2014 while his last La Liga free-kick had been against Sevilla on 26 March 2014.
Portugal talisman Ronaldo had shared free-kick duties with Gareth Bale in recentRead More »from Cristiano Ronaldo scores first free-kick after 56 attempts for club and country
Michael Owen wasn't very impressed by the Stoke midfielder's effort against Chelsea last week.World of Sport – Sat, Apr 11, 2015 15:36 BST
Charlie Adam’s sensational goal against Chelsea last weekend was widely acclaimed and, according to no less an authority than Jose Mourinho, was the goal of the season.
But not everyone agrees, like Michael Owen.
The former Liverpool and England went on BT Sport’s Fletch & Sav show on Saturday morning to try and set the record straight.
It is rare to see Owen so animated, but he managed to come across as downright entertaining as he explained why Adam’s goal has been so overrated.
“There’s a lot of skill in it, but goal of the season? Do me a favour … that’s not even the best goal of theRead More »from Michael Owen didn't think Charlie Adam's wonder goal against Chelsea was all that

It's training exercises such as the 'Rondo' which help them keep possession more successfully and distribute it more accurately, just like the video above shows.
The one-touch session has been a feature of Guardiola's training regime since he arrived at Bayern Munich in 2013 and goes some way to explaining how they have the highest pass success rate in the Bundesliga (87.3%).

The coverage was one of dismay and disgust - but a plan to change that has had an effect.
This year, organisers were determined to keep a lid onRead More »from 'Newspaper' dresses and inflatable horses, but no 'Ladies Day carnage'
