Bayern Munich’s Guardiola Coup Began After Their Defeat to Chelsea: The Nightly EPL

pep guardiola1 Bayern Munichs Guardiola Coup Began After Their Defeat to Chelsea: The Nightly EPL

Congratulations to Bayern Munich for capturing the signature of one of the most sought after managers in world soccer. While some had thought that former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola would be taking a long sabbatical from the game, The Guardian’s Rafa Honigstein reveals that Bayern Munich had been busy trying to capture Guardiola’s signature long before the Spaniard quit Barcelona last summer. In fact, the conversations started after Chelsea won the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final.

The signing of Guardiola has already rocked the Premier League, where discussion now has erupted about who will take over at Chelsea after Benitez leaves, and whether Guardiola is planning on managing Manchester United after his contract ends in Germany.
