Pep Guardiola made the decision to use a last-ditch effort to attempt to keep hold of two of Manchester City’s major cornerstones from the previous campaign because the club does not want to cope with the departures of Bernardo Silva and Ikay Gundogan before the upcoming season.
It would be the team of the club welcoming back a familiar face.
Although Bernardo Silva has not publicly expressed his intention to quit Manchester City, his comments during the championship game and other recent comments have served as a series of signals that the player is seriously considering leaving the organization.
The same applies to Gundogan, but his contract is going to expire soon.
Manchester City is using its last option when faced with this predicament.
It’s the return of a player who is well-known to the English squad, who took part in the club’s most prosperous period, and who was essential in building the framework for the group that eventually managed to win the triple this season.
a mentor whom Bernardo Silva and Gundogan both adore and fully trust.
Which coach will return to Manchester City under Guardiola?
Manchester City is reportedly working on getting Juanma Lillo back.
After Enzo Maresca left for Leicester City, the position of assistant coach became available. At the citizen club, with sporting director Txiki Begiristain in charge of the negotiations, they want to carry out Pep Guardiola’s request that Lillo, who was previously in the dugout in the 2020–2021 and 202–202 seasons, return.
