Villarreal – club-family: the two heroes of the final EL in childhood ran on the field to congratulate their idols, and now they have created a fairy tale themselves. The 86-year-old grandfather was very worried about Pau Torres at home: he immediately knew that the guy would turn out to be a top football player.
The victory of "Villarreal" in the Europa League is a big event for the eponymous 50-thousand-year-old town near Valencia. Naturally, the residents celebrated all night. For defender Pau Torres, this triumph is doubly important – he was born and raised in Villarreal, his entire family lives in the city. Pau's uncle played for Villarreal in the 1980s, and his older brother also studied at the academy. But the main personal fan of Torres is his grandfather Manuel.
