It is unlikely that Torrent will take any of the City staff to NY with no announcement of the coaching team yet to be announced. The new staff additions will be announced soon.
Torrent, former coach of Girona and assistant coach at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, comes to NY from sister club Manchester City, where he was an assistant to Pep Guardiola. His contract will run until the end of the 2020 season.
"Since I have been in this football club it has been a real pleasure to work with the players I had".
"A smooth transition was certainly a priority, particularly for a group of players who have had an excellent campaign so far", he said. "I know the sacrifices necessary to progress and I hope, of course, to help the young players express their talent and that I can guide them". Torrent, a Catalan, has won 23 trophies with Guardiola over the years.
