Spanish manager, Domenec Torrent, who worked as Pep Guardiola’s assistant manager at Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and Barcelona has been sacked from his first major managerial role after just three months in charge.
Domenec Torrent was only hired by Brazilian champions Flamengo back in July but suffered two heavy defeats in their last three games.
The announcement followed Flamengo’s 4-0 loss to Atletico Mineiro on Sunday, a result that left the Rio de Janeiro outfit third in the Brazilian Serie A standings.
‘Domenec Torrent and his backroom staff are no longer in charge of the first team,’ the Rio de Janeiro club said in a statement.
Flamengo won 14, drew four, and lost six of their 24 matches under the Spaniard’s command.
Mauricio Souza, Flamengo’s U-20 boss, will take over as interim manager, starting with the first leg of Flamengo’s Copa do Brasil quarterfinal against Sao Paulo at the Maracana stadium on Wednesday, November 11th.
