• Manuel Briñas admits offences while he was working at school
• No accusations made by players against former coach, now 88
Atlético Madrid have severed their relationship with the man who ran their youth system for 20 years and launched an investigation after he admitted to sexually abusing a boy in his charge at the Catholic boarding school where he lived and worked.
Friar Manuel Briñas, who is 88 and is known as the man who discovered Fernando Torres, told El País that it had happened “once, maybe twice” in the mid-1970s and that he “stopped immediately”, but his version does not tally with that of the victim and four other former students who have come forward with testimonies of abuse, according to the newspaper.
