If they hire him. I will support him and wish for success. I will give him the usual 6 months to see the direction of the team. Then will decide if he is good enough. I am fair and consistent whether na local coach or foreign coach. It is equal treatment. if he is not up to standard, he has to go. Nigeria should bee a powerhouse in Africa. Drawing against teams like Lesotho and Zimbabwe in competitive games is unacceptable. Reaching semi finals at Afcon is unacceptable. The Standard is to win Afcon and to get to atleast the 2nd round of the WC. That is the standard Nigeria should always have. Also coaches got to be winners. But the NFF have lowered that standard. WOWO Nigerians only apply that standard to local coaches. If Torrent doesn't do well against SA and Benin. I will not blame him. he is walking into a tough job. It is not going to be easy.
Winners do it the right way.

I know but eventually he will want to manage a national team. Continue to make progress in his career. Go where they want you.

A quick google check reveals he would be a bad choice. He has failed in his recent head coach positions - New York City, Flamengo and Galatasaray. He didn’t last more than 6 months in his last two jobs before he was sacked.

He’s had a good career as number 2 working with Guardiola but obviously not a successful career as the number 1 in all the clubs he has managed.
He is perfect for the NFF then. He will tell us how we need to be patient and learn from Morocco and Senegal.

Why do you guys think a coach can wave a magic wand and start winning right away? Do you know the personnel he inherited at the clubs he coached or the trajectory of the clubs at the time he took over? Besides, since when did winning at a club equal winning with SE? When Pesseiro was hired you people said he was a failure in Venezuela but he needed up taking SE to Afcon finals. Perhaps it’s time to admit that you know little to nothing about what it takes to win just from googling.

Have we (the NFL) ever hired a coach based on merit? They all come to Naija and make their names

Seems like we are always impressed by names I.e. Peseiro’s connections with Mourinho and now Torent’s relationship with Guardiola
Na today? you do not know the typical Nigerian? The usual "Do you know who I am?" "Do you know my father?" :lol:

We are excited by connections! By names.. by God fatherism. It tickles us! We do not like talent or quality. So long as your best friend is in high places (Mourinho, Pep), thats all that matters.

We can make similar excuses for any coach. Show me where I said anything about Peseiro before he was hired...I'm waiting. But I know that I do not want the cowardly football he played against Cote d'ivoire for my team. If NFF decides to hire Torrent after his poor record, we will support the team and hope for the best. So face NFF, not me.

I have never claimed to be an expert in football - if I was one I would be making a living from it. My test is my eye...if the team is playing well even grandma from the village will know...the game is not that complicated.

It happens! It’s been 10 yrs for Italy. If they miss the next one it’ll be a 16yrs absence by 2030 WC if they qualify.if they don’t it’ll be 20yrs. 8yrs is Nattin.
:woot:
Italy have won World Cups and have a slightly above average league and clubs own academies so when they do get it together they’ll be expected to makeup for their loses,Nigeria on the other hand will most likely become a nation that has been like Hungary,Russia and at best teams that appear every now and again like Bulgaria and Romania,only Nigerian will miss out and the party goes on.
