Enrique was impressed by Torres’ performance and explained that he is one of the best crossers in LaLiga.
‘Ferran Torres has been at a very high level, on both wings,’ he said in his post-match press conference.
‘He was a constant danger to the German defence. He is one of the players whose crosses are the best in LaLiga. More than crosses, I think he is making (incisive) passes.’
The Spaniard was Pep Guardiola’s first signing of the summer as the Premier League giants swooped in with a £20.9million bid as part of a deal that could rise to £37million for the Valencia winger.
