Guten Tag! Guardiola to Join Bayern Munich.
After months of speculation the sabbatical year of Pep Guardiola, ex manager of Football Club Barcelona came to an end when, Tuesday Bayern Munich announced his hiring as their new head coBach for the next three seasons.
Just last week his name was linked to almost every major club on the Premier League. From Chelsea FC and his owner Roman Abramovich with a contract offered of $26 Million Dollars to coach the blue team next season, to versions that mentioned his name to lead Manchester City after the departure of Mancini, and even versions that he was to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson's on Manchester United bench.
Since he departed from Barcelona with a record of 14 titles in four years, Guardiola became the most desired coach in the world. There's only one explanation for this, in his first season in Barça, he won the triple crown of la Liga, la Copa del Rey and the Champions League. With the addition the following season of the Spanish Supercup, the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup title. Then in 2010/11 he went for a double, Liga and Champions, and on his last year on Barça’s bench the team won four more titles: the Spanish Supercup, the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup and the Copa del Rey.
Bayern, who have not won titles in the past two seasons, and still have the sour taste of losing the 2009-2010 UEFA Champions League finals to the Inter Milan, the coach then was not other than Mourinho. Then they lost again on 2011-2012 in a final held at the Allianz Arena in Munich with Chelsea. There's hope that Guardiola can bring the glory days when Bayern won a record of 22 German league titles and four Champions League trophies.
"We are very pleased that we have succeeded in securing the signature of Pep Guardiola, who was being courted by many clubs,'' enthused chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. "Pep Guardiola is one of the most successful coaches in the world and we are sure he will lend plenty of glamour, not just to Bayern, but also to German football. We look forward to working with him from July 2013."
