Well, this will change some of the narrative about Pep’s future at Chelsea and/or Manchester United DUH DUH DUH. The open question over Pep was his ability to adapt to a club with well-payed professionals from different backgrounds, playing styles, and philosophies. Bayern in many ways provides the best of both worlds. Bayern has a core of Bayern youth academy products like Toni Kroos, Philip Lahm, Holger Badstuber and Thomas Mueller, coupled with some international stars like Javi Martinez and Franck Ribery.

Moreover, Bayern are likely to finish this season as Bundesliga champions. The club were Champions League finalists. Pep is not walking into a warzone or a project, but rather a complete product in need of steering. He avoids the ridiculous pressure of England, along with its rabid tabloid culture.

While it bothers me Guillem Balague was right on this one, it’s a great move for all involved…

  1. Meh – good for Pep and for Bayern Munchen, but I would have liked him to try his skills on a “project”. Not necessarily something dysfunctional like Chelsea or AC Milan, but something where there needs to be building going on and particularly in Spain. How cool would it be to see him go up against Real Madrid and Barcelona at least twice in a season. Still, as a football fan I’m glad he’s back.

  2. While the pressure might not be the same as England, he will still have the pressure of managing Germany’s biggest team in a football mad city (let alone a football mad country).

  3. odd that bayern feel the need to hire him, I mean hes great but youre not doing too bad without him.
