Albert Riera returns to Manchester City to seek advice from Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta

Albert Riera returned to Manchester City after 13 years away to pick the brains of boss Pep Guardiola and assistant manager Mikel Arteta on Thursday afternoon.

Riera, who made 15 appearances for City back in 2006 during a brief loan spell from Espanyol, is working on gaining his coaching badges and few are better placed than Guardiola right now to pass on words of advice.

Sharing snaps of the trio in Guardiola's office, Riera was access all areas at the club's state-of-the-art training facility before heading out onto the training pitches to introduce himself to some of the players.
