Mikel Arteta out, Xabi Alonso in.
According to Goal, ex-midfielder from Liverpool, Real and Bayern could take the place that his compatriot left taking the reins of Arsenal : that of Guardiola’s assistant in Manchester City. After starting his coaching career with young people from Casa blanca, Alonso (38) has been leading Real Sociedad’s reserve for this season, fifth in his group in Spanish D3. Guardiola and Alonso have known each other well since their joint adventure in Munich, and the latter has never hidden his admiration for Pep. According to Marca, the current assistant Rodolfo Borrell would only be an interim.
Ideal to get your hands on a modest team that won’t have to endure the pressure of the Champions League.
