Guardiola Confirms New Backroom Staff After Arteta Left For Arsenal by 360gistpilot(m): 8:29am On Dec 21, 2019
Manchester City will look at adding to their backroom staff in summer after Mikel Arteta left to become Arsenal manager.

Arteta stepped up to become Pep Guardiola's No.2 when long-time assistant Domenec Torrent left to join New York City in 2018, taking charge of a Champions League game against Lyon that the manager was suspended for.

Having interested Arsenal last year when the Gunners were looking to replace Arsene Wenger, the former Everton midfielder's reputation has continued to rise at the Etihad with a number of players praising him for the work he has done to improve them.

With Unai Emery sacked and Freddie Ljungberg showing signs that he may not be able to turn things around, Arsenal stepped up their pursuit of Arteta this week and confirmed him as their new manager on Friday.

Despite reports claiming otherwise, Guardiola said that there had been no approach from Arsenal for Rodolfo Borrell, another important member of the backroom staff.

Borrell is likely to step up into Arteta's role as the team opt against bringing any new additions in before the end of the season and then assess the situation again going forward.

“From now on Rodolfo stays with me, we've not had any approach from Arsenal for him," said Guardiola. "He'll step up [at City]."

"We'll continue like this until the summer, with the people that have been here since three years ago. We'll see what happens in the summer, what we can improve. I've not thought about names."
