Football coaches rarely finish their careers pre-emptively, usually working with various clubs throughout a lengthy career that typically ends by retirement age. This is evident with Dome Torrent, the former Assistant Coach for Barcelona FC under Pep Guardiola. Dome would become an influential force inside the coaching community after his time with Barcelona FC, prompting his inevitable inclusion into Bayern Munich & Manchester City.
After three notable positions as Assistant Coach, Dome Torrent was hired NYCFC (New York City Football Club) as their Head Coach for the 2019 MLS Season. Dome made the switch from European to American soccer, sustaining a single season. Torrent would mutually part ways with NYCFC after the COVID-19 Pandemic unfolded worldwide, forcing NYCFCs reserve funds to deplete by substantial volumes. Their finances couldn’t afford the long-term cost of employing Dome Torrent as Head Coach.
Dome Torrent was 1st seen on the American continent after taking over for Patrick Vieira, a man who failed to acquire Championship status for NYCFC. Selecting Dome Torrent proved favourable for NYCFC, with their club reaching a new record of yearly goals. They’d finish 1st in the Eastern Conference but struggle to overcome the MLS Semi-Finals, ultimately lose to Toronto FC.
New Head Coaching Position Acquired
Dome Torrent elected to leave the American football market after his single-season, moving over towards Central America. It’s been announced that Dome Torrent is taking the position of Head Coach at Clube de Regatas to do Flamengo. This means that the former leader of NYCFC is moving into the “Brasil Series A-League”. He’ll also coach Flamengo FC in Brazil’s “Carioca Championship League”. It’s not surprising that Dome Torrent elected this club for his future coaching position, with them having acquired 36 League Championships & Two Copa Libertadores Crowns.
The Clube de Regatas do Flamengo were lucky in acquiring Dome Torrent. There wasn’t any shortage of vacant positions for this Head Coach, with European & American clubs both offering him largescale multi-year contracts. Electing Flamengo FC shows that Dome Torrent wants another winning outfit, which he’s struggled to acquire since leaving the Premier League & Champions League in Europe.
