Spain international striker Fernando Torres said he would give his life to help Atletico Madrid to La Liga success.
Torres – back on loan in Madrid from Milan until the end of the 2015-16 after spending the second half of last season at his boyhood club – has never won a top-flight title, despite coming close during spells in the Premier League with Liverpool and Chelsea.
The 31-year-old helped Atletico to Segunda success in 2002 but he is desperate to go one step further under the guidance of Diego Simeone this term.
“When a footballer plays they do it for a lot of reasons, fulfilling a dream they had as a boy,” Torres replied when asked if had anything left to do in his playing career.
“I’ve still got titles to win. For example I’m missing a league title. I’ve never won one and to win one with Atleti would be special.
“You should always aspire for it all, winning titles is what I’m missing. I’ll give my life and everything I have to achieve it.”
Torres scored three goals in 19 La Liga appearances as Atletico finished third behind champions Barcelona and Real Madrid in 2014-15.
