Man City hires two replacements to complete Pep Guardiola’s backroom staff.

Man City hires two replacements to complete Pep Guardiola’s backroom staff.

Pep Guardiola’s coaching staff at Manchester City has expanded by two after losing two this summer to other positions.

To assist Pep Guardiola this year, Manchester City has added a second new assistant coach.

Juanma Lillo, who held the position for two years at the Etihad before moving to Qatar last year to become a head coach, was welcomed back to the club with great joy by Blues manager. Lillo announced his return before the Community Shield after leaving that position in the summer for personal reasons.

Inigo Dominguez, Lillo’s longtime assistant, joined City last week, giving Guardiola a full coaching staff in time for the Premier League opener at Burnley. At Turf Moor, as the Blues quickly defeated the Championship winners with a goal from Erling Haaland and a final score of 3-0, the manager could be seen regularly conversing with Lillo.

Enzo Maresca and Rodolfo Borrell, who both left the club this summer after serving as members of Guardiola’s staff last summer, will be effectively replaced by Lillo and Dominguez. Borrell moved to the MLS to take the position of sporting director at Austin, and Maresca is now the head coach of the recently relegated Leicester City.

Last season, Lillo unofficially assisted City in their Champions League matchups with Real Madrid and Inter Milan, and Guardiola is thrilled to have him back. Juanma is the best helper you can have in difficult times, and you need to find people close to you during difficult times, he said.

“When things are going well, I don’t need anyone; just pop the champagne and let’s celebrate.”. Juanma is a huge human being, in addition to his football knowledge, but in the bad times. “.
