Oliver Torres: Made an immediate impact for Atletico Madrid

The 18-year-old Torres was handed his first start for Atletico in Sunday's Primera Division clash against Real Betis and he made a stunning impact as he opened the scoring after just 12 seconds.

Villa, who scored twice in the second half to help Atletico run out 5-0 winners, believes the Rojiblancos have a special talent on their hands but has warned against pushing the teenager too hard too soon.

Spain's record goalscorer said on his club's official website: "He has a huge future ahead of him, everyone at Atletico loves him, we see him every day and we don't have to rush him.

"He had a fantastic game today, starting with the goal.

"The fans have years and years ahead to enjoy this kid. Be patient because he has everything to be exceptional."
