Prem clubs pipped at post in Pep pursuit
Pep Guardiola has shocked many by opting to manage Bayern Munchen next season.
The Spaniard had earlier spoken of his aspirations to manage in The Premier League. He was quoted in The Guardian as saying:
‘In Italy, Latin people will support you when you are playing and when you lose, they kill you. In England I’m always surprised that people always support everything and that is nice. That’s why, maybe, I hope to have the challenge or the opportunity to train there’
But, this afternoon, Bayern legend and chief exec Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed:
“We are delighted that we have managed to get Pep Guardiola whom several big clubs wanted and contacted. He is one of the most successful trainers in the world and we are sure that not only Bayern Munich but the whole of German football will benefit from what he brings.”
