Former Chelsea player turned pundit forced to get Fernando Torres tattoo (video)


Fernando Torres has tortured Chelsea as an opponent and then a teammate, and now the Atletico Madrid striker has left a permanent impression on a former Blues midfielder.

Craig Burley is an ESPN FC broadcaster. He played for Chelsea from 1989-1997 as part of a 15-year career that also saw him at Celtic and Derby County, and capped 46 times for Scotland.

But he made the mistake of declaring that he’d get a tattoo of Torres if the forward scored for Atletico Madrid in his first El Derbi madrileño since rejoining Atleti.

Poor form player against a world power or not, it was a really silly bet. Torres is a striker. He struck.

And now Burley has his first tattoo. Seems it would’ve been a perfectly-reasonable bet to bail on, Craig. From ESPN FC:
