Exclusive: Valencia hero Torres willing to reignite management career abroad

Valencia legend Curro Torres would be willing to move abroad to reignite his management career.

Torres became a hero for Valencianistas during a ten-year spell at Mestalla.

The right-back won two La Liga titles, the Copa Del Rey and UEFA Cup during his time with Los Che.

After retiring from playing in 2011, Torres was appointed as manager of Valencia B in the Segunda Division B.

Torres was a great success with Valencia's reserve side, taking them to final round of the promotion play-offs in 2017, which ended in defeat to Albacete Balompie.

He then spent time at FC Lorca and Croatian side NK Istra before spending time at Cordoba.

The 44-year-old has been out of management since leaving CD Lugo halfway through 2020.

Having spent a brief time managing abroad in Croatia, Torres would be willing to go through the experience again.

"Yes, I would consider coaching abroad," he told "England has one of the best leagues in the world.

"When I was in Croatia, I communicated with the players in my Basic English and I would love the chance to work abroad and improve on my English again!"
