SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: BAYERN MUNICH SIGNS GUARDIOLA UNTIL 2016

BAYERN MUNICH SIGNS GUARDIOLA UNTIL 2016

The announcement that BAYERN MUNICH has signed ex-FC Barcelona Coach JOSEP GUARDIOLA has set the World Sports media on fire. So much so that this post is old news, irrelevant as all the comments that needed to be made have already been written or said.

The German Club made it official on their Web site today & the agreement binds Guardiola with Bayern until 2016.  All the other offers from Milan, Manchester United & City, Chelsea FC etc. have been dismissed for the German experience. The Catalan will take over current Coach Jupp Heynckes who will retire at the end of the season with 67 years of age.

Bayern Munich

Everyone is thinking it, will Bayern Munich take on the "Barcelona Model of Football"? I suppose beforehand that it´s the intention & the reason why the Directives of the German Club went knocking at his door. Will Guardiola poach in "Camp Barça" for new players, I do not doubt it, but from the younger levels of the FC Barcelona structure.

Will he succeed? Beforehand I wish him all the luck & the experience tells me he could turn Bayern into a Football machine. However, at Barcelona his resources were unique & perhaps unrepeatable : Messi, Eto´o, Xavi , Pujol, Iniesta etc & etc. 

It will be fascinating to follow this summer & next season how things go over at Munich.
