In probably the most blockbuster transfer of this transfer season, comes the news that Pep Guardiola is taking over at Bayern Munich. He will take over from Jupp Heyneckes who is going to retire at the end of this season. With the whole set of clubs lining up for his signature this was probably a bit of surprise decision from Pep. But in my opinion, I think it is a correct decision as he moves from one club that believes in getting it's players from it's academy to another club which also follows similar thought process. What are your takes on this move? Cheers! Ram

i would hope he can take over at AS ROMA and help Zeman..but it`s his decision.. i think he didn`t need barcelona academy player.. WHy? because Germany academy player is one of the best too..It`s gambling too for bringing many barcelona academy player to allianz arena..the typical isn`t same and of course it takes a time for barcelona player for adapting in Allianz arena.. he can use the current player in bayern munchn

Yes, if Guardiola can bring Barcelona style to Bayern it would be a brilliant achievement. But the German game is a bit physical game and it would be interesting to see how he adapts there. Cheers! Ram

For the longest time since Pep took leave, Chelsea has been courting him. The spaniard comments also points to the BPL as his next destination. I think this confirmation will be a surprise to many, especially Abramovic

I think Roman could be the reason why Pep did not join Chelsea. His reputation and treatment of managers is well known. Cheers! Ram

I think it's hilarious that he's not going to Chelsea after all.

Yeah, it's surprising, too. Many thought that Guardiola will ended on English Premier League, with all the big clubs chasing him. But I hope Guardiola's choice is right. Looking to see what success he can brought to Munich

It is quite a surprise for Pep Guardiola to go to Bayern Munich after all the talks that he was interested in the English Premiership. I was thinking that either Chelsea or Manchester City would be his likely destination. Bayern Munich is a big team. But they have been commanding in the Bundesliga. They are expected to win the championship every season with no real close competitors, except maybe Borussia Dortmund in the last two seasons. So the challenge for Pep Guardiola is just to make sure that the team is to keep winning. It is only in the UCL that Pep Guardiola could make a name for himself if he could win it more than once with Bayern Munich. I think people will see how Pep Guardiola performs by the way his team plays in the Bundesliga. A win is not enough or even ten consecutive wins are not enough. He will be expected to win by playing attractive football. But Bayern Munich is not Barcelona and they certainly have their own style of play. So I think we should not expect to see tiki-taka in Munich. Bayern Munich does not have many home grown talents in their present first team. Except for Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger, the other players are all bought from other teams. But nowadays all professional football clubs do have a youth academy to try to unearth unpolished diamonds but it will only be successful IF there is talent to be found. It is also more economical financially in the long run to grow your own than to buy outside. I hope Pep Guardiola will do well in Bayern Munich. After being so successful in Spain with Barcelona, it is not easy for him to do the same with another team in another league as expectation is understandably high. I will hate to see another AVB in Chelsea to happen again.

Actually his timing was also very interesting. He came to England to give a speech in the annual coaches seminar and then came this announcement. Coming to Bundesliga, probably the lone voice of criticism that came against Pep was that he chose the easier option of Bundesliga as it is easier to win there. But I also want him to succeed at Bayern. Cheers! Ram
