Torres back training after nasty head clash
Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres returned to training on
Monday after recovering from a sickening head clash, suggesting
he could play in Wednesday's Champions League tie against Bayer
Torres lost consciousness in a challenge with Deportivo la
Coruna's Alex Bergantinos in a 1-1 draw on March 2 but was later
discharged from hospital with no serious injuries.
Despite rejoining his team-mates on the training pitch, the
32-year-old has yet to receive the all-clear from doctors though,
the club indicated.
Atletico coach Diego Simeone last week said he believed Torres
would be fit in time for the last 16 second leg at the Vicente
Calderon, where Atletico will look to defend their 4-2 lead.
The forward came off the bench to score Atletico's fourth goal in
the first leg in Germany but has been sidelined for the team's
last two games in La Liga.
