Fernando Torres thanked Luis Aragonés' son for persuading his father not to resign from the Spain job in a new spot for a Madrid-based beer.Shot in a typical, local bar, Torres chatted with the son of the late Spain coach who revealed that one day, his father had had enough of the constant criticism and told his family that he was heading to his office at the RFEF to hand in his resignation. "What can you do? Of course it affects you, he's your father. We chatted about it for 15 minutes, then, after a a moment of silence, he said, 'Right, I'm going to make this lot champions!'" Luis' son explained. "And that was when I thought, 'He's back!'".
A tale which Fernando Torres probably had no idea about at the time. "It's thanks to that 15-minute chat with your dad that made it possible. It's thanks to you that I was able to score that goal", he said.
