New York City FC head coach Domenec Torrent gets out ahead of the defeat by taking full responsibility for his club. 

New York City FC’s heavy and humiliating defeat against Toronto FC is one that hopes to be soon forgotten. It was a 4-0 that leaves no time for comments and considerations.

NYCFC deservedly lost and head man Domenec Torrent completely understood.

“They deserved to win. For us it was a bad night. We had two chances, one in the first half and one in the second half, but in the end there is little to say, they played better than us.

Domenec Torrent is clearly regretting this crushing defeat, but he does not seek an excuse for this defeat:

“I didn’t read the game, it’s just my fault. The team tried to play with intensity, but it was difficult to play in this way. We created some chances, but in the end the blame of this defeat is only mine.”

Tack on the fact the club is still looking for its first win and the 4-0 loss looms that much larger.

“We have only three points in the standings if we want to reach the playoffs we have to do much more. I’m not looking for excuses, it’s my fault. I probably didn’t pass to my players conviction, I didn’t read the game and this can happen,” continued Torrent.


Domenec Torrent admits his faults, does not make excuses, and wants to turn the page immediately.

“In the second half we tried to do better, then the penalty ended the game. Now we have to look ahead, we need to improve and get back to playing as we know. If we do so, taking control of the ball and the game, then we will start winning. I have to congratulate Toronto for their performance and victory, next time we will try to play better against them. But now we just have to think about improving ourselves, being more clinical and creating opportunities. Only in this way will we be able to win again.”

Domenec Torrent and New York City FC will try to return to victory next April 6 against Montreal Impact at Yankee Stadium.
