According to an update from Sports Journalist Pol Ballus, Man City are set to announce Juanma Lillo as Pep Guardiola’s assistant manager in the ‘coming days’ – leading to plenty of Sky Blue reactions online. 

Lillo spearheaded Qingdao Huanghai’s Chinese Super League promotion in his most recent post and now looks likely to sign with City until 2021 – replacing Mikel Arteta as Guardiola’s understudy at the Etihad Stadium.

The 54-year-old has been labelled as a real inspiration to Guardiola having previously worked with our boss at Mexican side Dorados de Sinaloa during the 2005/2006 season.

Will Lillo become a better assistant manager than Arteta?

Yes, he is Pep's mentor
