Fernando Llorente – El País Q&A

After Raúl Albiol’s very hysterical Q&A comes that of Fernando Llorente.  He doesn’t come close to Albiol in making me laugh, but his is quite adorable – he raised a cat – named Flipper – by feeding it with a baby bottle!

    This guy is so cute!
    I live in Potch, where the team stayed,
    and I really wanted to meet him while they were here!
    But security was so extremely tight, I couldn’t.

    Fernando, if you see this, I also raised wild kittens when I was younger..
    I would really like to meet you one day!
    Good luck for tomorrow, and I hope you get to play!!
