Alonso, who has previously played under the likes of Jose Mourinho and Rafael Benitez throughout a legendary career, is touted by many fans as a great replacement for Arteta to become Guardiola’s new understudy.

The Spaniard, as well as having Premier League experience with Liverpool, has also played under Guardiola at Bayern Munich – with the pair enjoying an extremely successful spell in Germany together.

As well as this, Alonso also has years under his belt for Real Madrid in La Liga – who City face off against in the last 16 of the Champions League. Currently, he’s working as the manager of Real Sociedad’s B team.

His impressive resume has resulted in many supporters imploring Guardiola to hire him if Arteta leaves – with fans taking to Twitter and voicing their argument.
