Simeone demands for more of the same from Torres

Fernando Torres put in a fine display in Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Getafe and coach Diego Simeone wants him to build on that.

Diego Simeone wants Fernando Torres to build on his first La Liga goal since returning to Atletico Madrid in Saturday's 2-0 win over Getafe.

Torres finally broke his Liga duck at the 10th attempt with a wonderful header from Koke's thrd-minute free-kick at Vicente Calderon.

And Simeone has challenged the former Liverpool and Chelsea man to hit the goal trail as Atletico look to secure their place in the top four.

"It [Torres' performance] was better, [playing] with more coordination with his team-mates," Simeone said.

"We need more of the same. He knows that requirement and he is accustomed to that. 

"He lives for goals and needed to score in the league. There's nice competition between him and [fellow striker Mario] Mandzukic, who for us is a decisive player. 

"We need Torres to do more of the same."
