Wednesday, 19 October, 2016

The pivot is the Oviedo football player who has stolen more balls, 61, this season. Hierro has given stability to the team with the 4-1-4-1 formation. Torro is an essential element, he binds defenders and midfielders. He is in charge of controlling and administrating the ball. He arrived from Madrid last summer and seems to fit in his new rol. "I'm very comfortable playing in this position, preceding centrals, being more free", he says. Although his function is always depending on the needs of the game. Like in Girona, where he played a dopple pivot with Erice. "I also feel comfortable. Each game is an oportunity to grow" he adds optimistic as always. Torró has become the player from Oviedo who recovers more balls every game.

Torró came las summer as an over request of Fernando Hierro, the player was a safe bet even though he hadn't had many options during the previous season in Castilla... Now Torró has again all that sensations that he already had debuting at his 17 and be called up regularily in lower categories. The young men from Alicante is often a member of the start eleven, he has missed only one game for non sports related reasons: he didn't play against Reus because of gastro-intestinal problems. He has played when he has available and his influence has been noted at the team way to play. He is the second player of Oviedo that is more active in the field, 396 passes, following David Fernández who is in charge of squaring the ball from behind, 418 passes. The time going by and adapting himself to his new rol, he has improved his defensive play. 61 recovers make him the first player in his team. He leads the steals preceding José Fernández (52), Nando (35), Erice (34), Susaeta (31), Michu (29) and David Fernández (28). Established in his rol inside the team, Torró is an eyewitness of how the team is growing. " We have a good work dynamic, that's true but we need to keep it, getting three points" says the pivot. "We are good at defending but we need more: pause and personality", he explains. "Moving down is only three points away", he points out to alert of the level inside la Liga; "A team in the move down positions wins a couple of games and it moves to the first positions in the table."
