After much speculation about his future, Josep Guardiola I Sala - popularly known as "Pep Guardiola" has agreed terms with German Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich on a three year contract. FC Bayern Munich has confirmed that the present Manager Jupp Heynckes will be retiring at the end of the season when his contract expires with the Bavarians. Making the news known Karl Hans Rummenigge expressed
“We are delighted to have being able to persuade Pep Guardiola to join Bayern Munich in the wake of several competitions from top clubs in Europe. Pep is one of the most successful coaches and we are confident that he will bring a lot to Bayern Munich and particular the German League. We look forward to start working with him in July 2013.
But the question would arise why Bayern Munich- particularly in the face of several competitions from top clubs like Chelsea who would certainly give him a blank cheque, even though from a football perspective, no forward thinking coach would want to put a dent to his CV and quite obviously, the money was not his motivation, the answer is not farfetched, the German league have gone through rejuvenation over the last ten years.
