Domenec Torrent, a long-time assistant to Pep Guardiola, announced on Friday that he had signed with reigning Brazilian and South American champions Flamengo.
Torrent, 58, will take over the Rio de Janeiro club from Jorge Jesus, who recently announced he had signed with Portuguese club Benfica.
“I’m very happy to be part of this great nation. We’ll be looking to win titles,” Torrent said in a video posted on Instagram, wearing a Flamengo jersey.
Jesus led Flamengo to five titles in just over a year with the club.
Torrent is known for a similar attacking style. He arrives at Flamengo from New York City FC, where he was the head coach for a year and a half. (Guardian)
