Spain international Fernando Torres has said he would give his life to win La Liga title with his current side Atletico Madrid before he retires.

Torres, who won the Segunda division title with his current side back in 2002, is desperate to get his hands on the La Liga trophy.

The forward, who couldn’t clinch a top-flight domestic league winners’ medal during his time at the Premier League with both Liverpool and Chelsea, said: “There are still trophies for me to win. For example, I’m missing a league title. I have never won one and it would be very special to win it with Atletico,” he told a press conference ahead of the pre-season clash with Shanghai SIPG.

“You’ve always got to go for everything. I’d give my life and everything I have to win that.

“I want to go on winning, I feel great and full of enthusiasm for playing at the top level. I still have many years left to play and I want to enjoy them here at Atleti.

“I want people to enjoy themselves along with me. I want to win trophies, be it this season, next season or the one after.”

Torres has been handed the No.9 jersey ahead of the 2015-16 campaign following Mario Mandzukic’s move to Juventus and the Spain international hopes it will bring about a “special” campaign.

“I am pleased to have the number I grew up with at the club again,” added the 31-year-old. “This is a special season for me.”
