Liverpool hero Xabi helps Guardiola at Man City

Liverpool hero Xabi Alonso has joined Manchester City training today.

Former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich midfielder Alonso turned up to City's training session ahead of their big kick-off against Arsenal on Sunday at the Emirates, reports the Daily Mail.

The Spaniard was spotted in deep conversation with Pep Guardiola before sharing a joke with the City manager and his coaching staff on Wednesday in Manchester.

Guardiola and Alonso have forged a very strong friendship after the manager brought the latter to Bayern Munich back in 2014 before going on to win three consecutive Bundesliga titles.

The 36-year-old has recently acquired his coaching badges after taking part in a six-week crash course.
