Ex-Imp Sergio Torres is to release an auto-biography on October 1st. The former Imps loanee reflects on a journey that took him from deep in the non-league to playing at Old Trafford against Manchester United.
Torres joined the Imps on loan from Peterborough in 2009/10 and impressed many during his two loan spells at the club (separated by a few weeks), including scoring the first goal during the Chris Sutton era. His no-holds-barred style of creative play made him extremely popular amongst Imps fans, but a permanent move never materialised as he made his way to Crawley.
The book's synopsis on Amazon is.....
"The true-life story of an imagined Utopia - of willpower, sacrifice and joy, and of daring to dream. Imagine you're working in a brick factory in the Argentine city Mar del Plata, and a 22-year-old colleague tells you he's going to quit his job to become a professional footballer in Europe. Yeah, right. Next, he blows his savings on a ticket to England, travelling with just 300 dollars in his pocket. He doesn't speak English, has no one to stay with and no work. Time passes. You forget about the kid. Until, three years later, you turn on the TV and he's playing against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge - mixing it against the likes of Ballack and Drogba. After his brush with the Blues, it isn't long before he's up against Wayne Rooney at a packed Theatre of Dreams. The incredible journey of Crawley Town playmaker Sergio Torres shows that reality can be stranger than fantasy. And you haven't heard half of it yet..."
