Athletico-PR gave up on hiring Doménec Torrent to lead its team during the 2024 season. The team was interested in the former Flamengo coach, but, after the lack of a positive response from the Spaniard, Furacão announced the signing of Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio, last Wednesday (03), and he has already started activities at the Curitiba club this Friday (05).

Although the former Flamengo coach is one of the first options from Athletico-PR, which had been looking for a coach since November 2023, negotiations with Domènec Torrent were not concluded. This is because the club from Paraná made an official proposal with a contract valid until the end of 2024 and was waiting for a response from the Spanish commander by December 23rd.

Domènec Torrent, however, did not respond to Athletico's proposal -PR on time. This is because, leaving Flamengo with little work time (around four months) left the coach afraid of Brazilian football. Therefore, the Spaniard wanted a long-term project and demanded guarantees, such as a termination fine, which is something the team from Paraná has avoided for a few years.


Athletico saw the Spanish coach as an opportunity to build a base solid and competitive to face the challenges that lie ahead and, according to journalist Raísa Simplício, the interest was mutual, at least at the beginning of December. The negotiations, conducted discreetly, were being sent to the final phase, where contractual details were being discussed.

DOMÉNEC IN FLAMENGO

It is worth remembering that Domenèc was responsible for taking over the team in 2020, after Jorge Jesus resigned to return to work at Benfica. He was announced by Fla on July 30th, with a contract until the end of 2021. However, he ended up only staying for around four months, when he was fired at the beginning of November.


Expectations The public, in general, has always been very positive about the coach, given his impressive CV. He had many years of partnership with fellow Catalan coach Pep Guardiola and had successful experiences alongside the renowned coach. However, the recurrent defeats suffered and the poor coexistence with part of the Flamengo squad undermined the commander's work at Mais Querido.

He left Mengão with a performance of 63.8%, which, to put it mildly, in comparison, it is slightly worse than the performance that Jorge Sampaoli had in charge of the team (64.4 performance).

Flamengo's board was tough and objective this Friday afternoon. That's because the Rio de Janeiro red-and-black team fined and removed Gabigol's number 10 shirt. Therefore, the player vented on social media about the club's decision. The punishment was due to the leaked photo of the athlete wearing the Corinthians shirt.

The attacker explained that he accepts the decision and respects Flamengo's command, but also stated that the episode will not erase his history with the Rubro-Negro.


CHECK OUT GABIGOL'S FULL NOTE ON THE CONTROVERSY WITH FLAMENGO

"On that 11/12, 2022, after having felt the greatest emotions of my life with the glories and significant achievements for Flamengo, the club presented me with a very special shirt, number 10, simply the mantle worn by our greatest idol, Zico.

I confess that I felt a certain insecurity, because along with that shirt, came a great weight of responsibility.


At Flamengo, I found the best version of myself and I'm experiencing the best cycle of my career. I'm fascinated by titles and I've always expressed that on the website. excessive will on the field, which is often misinterpreted.

Flamengo allowed me to win many titles (2 Libertadores, 2 Brasileiros, 1 Copa do Brasil, 1 Recopa Sudamericana, 2 Supercups of Brazil and 4 Cariocas) and live these magical moments with the nation and be welcomed by the biggest fans in America, that is the true meaning of the word happiness.

In these more than 5 years of joy, and some sadness, I have always been certain, that of my love for this club, that of the love for the red-and-black nation.

Today I was informed by Flamengo's directors that I will no longer wear size 10. It's up to me to accept and respect the club's command. But this will never erase the history I built with my teammates. I accept the next shirt and I will give my life on the field for Mengao until the end of our story.

I love you, Flamengo!"

Despite everything that happened, the red and black board decided not to punish the player in relation to entering the field. As a result, the now former number 10 will travel to Manaus, where Fla. faces Amazonas in the third round of the Copa do Brasil. The clash will take place next Wednesday, the 22nd.

In a meeting at Ninho do Urubu this Friday, Flamengo defined the punishment for Gabigoldue to the photo with the Corinthians shirt. In addition to being fined 10% of his salary, the attacker will no longer be able to wear the legendary number 10. The punishments, however, stop there. The player will normally be part of the delegation that will travel to Manaus next week.

The information is from Mauro Cezar Pereira. According to the journalist, Gabigol is not away from the cast and will continue working alongside the main group. Next Wednesday, the 22nd, Flamengo will face Amazonas, at the Arena da Amazônia, and the striker will normally travel to the Copa do Brasil game.


In the understanding of the red-black board, removing Gabigol from the long trip to Manaus would be a kind of reward for the player. During the meeting, Marcos Braz only communicated the punishments and there was no discussion with the player. In Flamengo's view, if the photo was false, as Gabriel claimed, it should have been presented.


Flamengo supervisor receives warning

In addition to Gabriel Barbosa, the punishment also extended to supervisor Márcio Santos, better known as Marcinho. The professional appears in the controversial photo behind Gabigol. According to Mauro Cezar Pereira, Flamengo will warn the supervisor due to his supervisory role. Due to his position, Márcio should be the person who, in the board's opinion, could warn and reprimand Gabriel on that occasion.

Former Flamengo coach, Spanish Domènec Torrent will lead Atlético San Luis, from Mexico. The 61-year-old coach signed a two-year contract and should be announced by the Mexican club in the next few hours. The information comes from journalist Cesar Luis Merlo.

Domènec would welcome a move to Atlético San Luis, which will see the departure of Brazilian Gustavo Leal at the end of the season. The Spaniard would have time to start pre-season at the Mexican club, already thinking about 2024/25.


Doménec had been without a club since leaving Galatasaray, in Turkey, where he played 19 games and won seven victories. Since then, the Spaniard has been approached by several clubs, including Brazilian ones: Athletico-PR and São Paulo have already sought to hire the 61-year-old coach, but opted for other names.


Domènec Torrent coached Flamengo in 2020 , but did not last in charge of the club. There were just 26 games between August and November, with 15 wins, five draws and six defeats.
