Luis Aragones has died at the age of 75, and greats of the game have paid tribute to Spain's Euro 2008-winning coach. 

Aragones made Fernando Torres a mainstay of his squads and the Chelsea striker has paid his own tribute.

Translation: RIP Luis Aragones. Thank you Mister, I will never be able to thank you sufficiently for all you did for me.

Aragones handed David Villa his international bow and the striker formed a great partnership with Torres in attack.

Translation: It's a very sad day. One of the greatest goes. Thanks for teaching me a great part of what I am. Rest in peace Luis Aragones.

Cesc Fabregas became the youngest player to represent Spain at a World Cup when he was handed a substitute appearance by Aragones at the 2006 World Cup.

Translation: Rest in Peace, Mister. Thank you for everything! 

Sergio Ramos was another player to earn his international debut under the guidance of Aragones.

Translation: Luis has responsibility for what I am as a footballer and he taught us the path to glory. Big hug to all his family.

Alvaro Arbeloa was another to debut for Spain under Aragones and he was in the squad that won the 2008 European Championship.

Translation: What a great you have been, Luis. And how great is the gap that you leave. Rest in peace, grandfather.

Barcelona full-back Dani Alves did not play under Aragones, but the legendary coach's reach went beyond the players who worked under him.

Translation: The day has woken up sad, RIP Luis Aragones.

Andres Iniesta was a key cog in Aragones' midfield engine room during their glory years.

Translation: Thank you very much for everything that you taught us, for all that you gave us. We will remember you. For always Mister. RIP.

Spanish journalist and Bleacher Report writer Guillem Balague has paid his own tribute.

Aragones had four spells in charge of Atletico Madrid and the club paid their own tribute.
