Here’s Fernando Torres, then of Liverpool, doing his mate ‘Nacho’ a favour by starring in an advert for his Narub dog training school on the outskirts of Madrid, which sees our Nando engaging in a few basic canine-based activities; like getting a Doberman to leap through rings of fire and getting hustled off the ball by an Alsation in a tabard…

The advert was part of a three-pronged campaign by Spanish bank ‘Banco Gallego’ to promote their new ‘Amigos’ account (“if you’re not lucky enough to have a famous friend, there are other ways to increase your income”), with Torres also starring in two other adverts for companies owned by his pals; one for a hairdressing salon and the other for a tennis academy – though the dog school episode is easily the most enjoyable/awkward.

It was also fairly prescient, as the sight of Torres failing to beat a dog dressed as a dinnerlady in a penalty shootout was like a candid glimpse into his future.

    Why, did the dog have a Champions League Winners medal around its neck?

    Right?? Amongst numerous other medals as well…that’s one successful dog if so!

    You could even say Fernando Torres’ career went to the dogs after that ad
