Robbie Fowler was seemingly not impressed with the former Liverpool striker’s ball control during the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
Robbie Fowler has mocked former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres on social networking site Twitter.
The former Liverpool and Leeds United striker was not impressed with Torres’s failure to control a ball in the extra-time period of the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid on Saturday evening.
Just thought to myself “what a touch that is” as Torres chested it down… Then proceeded to control it 10 yards

Torres started the Champions League final at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan for Atletico, but he failed to guide Diego Simeone’s side to a win.
Los Blancos took the lead after just 15 minutes when Spain international defender Sergio Ramos scored from close range.
Yannick Carrasco equalised for Atletico in the 79th minute, as the final went into extra time and eventually penalties.
Madrid won the penalty shootout 5-3 to become the champions of Europe for the 11th time in history.
Torres was expected to be a key player for Atletico, but the former Liverpool and Chelsea man failed to do much during the game.
The 32-year-old Spaniard, on loan at the Madrid outfit from AC Milan, took two shots, had a pass accuracy of just 17%, did not create a single chance, attempted two dribbles, won 25% of his headers, and made two clearances and one block.
The striker was in good form heading into the Champions League final against Madrid, but his performance left much to be desired.
