MANCHESTER CITY manager Pep Guardiola has lost ANOTHER assistant coach after the club’s remarkable Treble win.
City confirmed that Rodolfo Borrell has left his role at the Etihad to become Austin FC’s new MLS sporting director.
Borrell became Guardiola’s assistant manager last season and helped the Citizens win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.
Txiki Begiristain, city director of football, said: “I would like to wish Rodolfo the best of luck in his new role at Austin FC.
“He has been instrumental in the club’s performance over the past nine years, both as Global Technical Director and after joining Pep Guardiola’s backroom team.
“The manager has often spoken about how important his coaching staff have been in helping him and the team achieve what we have.

“I am confident that he will be a huge asset to both Austin FC and American football.”
Previously at Liverpool, Borrell joined City as global technical director in 2014 and also worked as the academy’s head of coaching before joining Guardiola’s backroom staff two years later.
