Antoni Torres (Balaguer, 1943-Barcelona 2003) was a central defender (even though sometimes he played at right back) and he was one of those who “marked the line”

He was the most efficient defender at the Club for eleven seasons. He formed a duo with another player with similar characteristics, Gallego, which was very famous in the second half of the sixties and the beginning of the seventies.
He was a fixture in the team in the unforgettable league campaign of 1973-74 in which the official line-up of Barça was known as “los once hombres justos” (the right eleven men). The Club paid tribute to him along with Salvador Sadurní and Joaqum Rifé in a testimonial played on 1 September 1976.
After hanging up his boots he became a coach for the club and in 1979 was next to Rifé when FC Barcelona won their first European Cup Winners' Cup in Basel against Fortuna Düsseldorf.
