Someone still loves you, Fernando! Spanish pal Ramos puckers up for a birthday kiss with poster of £50m flop
Having endured a largely barren season at Chelsea in which he has seemed at times to be carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders, being overlooked by Spain for this week's World Cup qualifiers was the last thing Fernando Torres needed.
But it seems the out-of-sorts striker is still loved by someone.
International teammate Sergio Ramos has tweeted a picture of himself kissing a poster of the £50m flop at Spain's training ground.
The display of affection was no doubt the perfect present for Torres on his 29th birthday.
Real Madrid defender Ramos wrote: 'I want to congratulate a great friend who is not here, missing him lots... Happy birthday!!'
Despite ending his Chelsea scoring drought with a goal against Steaua Bucharest in the Europa League last Thursday, Torres was ignored by Spain boss Vicente Del Bosque.
