English Premier League champion Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has backed one of his most senior assistants, Domenec Torrent, to be named the new coach of the Nigerian senior team. OwnGoalNigeria.com reports.

Torrent was one of more than 40 foreign coaches who applied for the Super Eagles coaching position following the departure of José Peseiro when his contract expired at the end of last month.

Torrent, 61, worked with Guardiola at Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich and Manchester City winning the Spanish League, UEFA Champions League, English Premier League, Bundesliga and many national titles.

Precisely in the 11 years that he was working with Pep. The teams they coached together won 24 trophies, much more than any pair of coaches in the period analyzed.

He had a brief stint coaching New York City in the MLS and Brazilian team Flamengo. In 2022 he was the head coach of Turkish side Galatasaray and believes his chances of landing the Nigerian job will take advantage of his time with Pep, who once described him as a very intelligent and detail-oriented coach.

As ScoreNigeria first reported, the resume of the coach who has the Manchester City coach as one of his referees weighs heavily in his favor, although the technical committee of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) is wary of his little or no knowledge. of managing national teams, in particular an African team.
