PEP FAVOURITE NOW BEING BACKED FOR BARCELONA JOB, ARTETA WANTED HIM TO JOIN ARSENAL

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 future.

Koeman’s exit is now inevitable, with Barcelona

seeking change.

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.
