Liverpool supporters react as Xabi Alonso linked with Manchester City assistant role

Xabi Alonso has been reportedly touted as a potential successor to Mikel Arteta as Pep Guardiola’s assistant manager at Manchester City, with a decision to be announced in the coming months – and Liverpool supporters have reacted on Twitter.

Guardiola has been without a permanent assistant manager since Arteta departed towards the end of 2019 to take over at former side Arsenal. It has left City needing to fill the void in the coming months.

Goal have claimed that Rodolfo Borrell is being eyed by as a potential suitor, given the former Liverpool youth coach has impressed and promoted since the loss of Arteta. But Liverpool icon Alonso is also in contention.

Alonso, 38, has gone into coaching after a wonderful career that saw the former Spain international win the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005 – scoring in the famous Istanbul final. He clocked up 210 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions.

Indeed, the report claims Alonso – who has worked as Real Madrid Under-14’s coach and is now Real Sociedad B-team’s manager – is now potentially on his way to reunite with Guardiola, with whom he worked with at Bayern Munich.

Liverpool supporters have reacted on Twitter to the news that their icon Alonso could join their closest title rivals in Manchester City in the coming months – and many Anfield fans have urged Alonso to ignore such a move.
