Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman is seemingly on the
verge of being sacked – and one-time Arsenal target
Domenec Torrent has been backed for the job.
Barca were humiliated 3-0 away at Benfica on
Wednesday night, leading to questions over
Koeman’s exit is now inevitable, with Barcelona
A number of names have been touted, with Domenec
Torrent now one of them.
TORRENT FOR BARCELONA?
Names like Xavi and Roberto Martinez have been
suggested over the last 24 hours, with Torrent
something of a left-field shout.
A former Barcelona coach under Pep Guardiola,
Torrent followed Pep to Bayern Munich and Manchester City.
Torrent went on to manage New York City and
Flamengo, winning more than 48% of his games in both roles.
Crosas believes there are ‘thousands of reasons’ to
appoint Torrent, urging Barcelona to think outside the box and go with Pep’s aide.
ARTETA WANTED TORRENT AT ARSENAL
This would be a huge rise for Torrent, especially as he
was being linked with a coaching job at Arsenal less than two years ago.
Mikel Arteta wanted to add Torrent to his coaching
staff at Arsenal.
The pair had worked together at Manchester City and a reunion was seen as ‘likely’.
In the end, the deal didn’t happen. Torrent’s path took
him to Brazil instead, but may yet see him become
Barcelona boss – a big step up form an Arsenal coach.
