Victory in the Europa League was a dream come true for the outgoing Atletico Madrid forward, Fernando Torres who claims it was a perfect end to his time with the club.

Atletico Madrid won Marseille in a 3-0 scoreline at the final showdown to lift their third UEFA Europa League trophy on Wednesday night and Torres is sheer excited at their victory which was his first piece of major silverware as a Rojoblancos despite having spent 11 seasons at the club.

In what could well be his final appearance for Atleti as he prepares to leave at the end of the season, former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Torres was introduced in place of two-goal hero Antoine Griezmann in the 90th minute.

The Spanish striker poured out his heart to his 5.9 million Instagram fans and the uncountable supporters all over the world in a single post as regards his Europa League victory which was a childhood dream for him.

"Atletico you deserve the world. Proud of this team and these fans. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. I can't be happier," wrote the outgoing striker.

Congratulations Torres on a dream come through!
