Pep Guardiola confirmed as Bayern Munich coach on three-year deal
What a fucking awesome day. Bears get a new HC in Trestman that hopefully can lead us to many titles. Bayern gets Pep Guardiola the coach every club wants. I get an A in my finals. I think it's time for a song.. It's a beautiful day!
Bayern Munich have announced that Pep Guardiola will become the club's new coach when Jupp Heynckes' contract expires this summer.
Heynckes will stay on in his post until the end of this season before retiring, at which point the former Barcelona coach will take over on a deal that runs until June 2016.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern's chief executive, said: "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."
The news comes 24 hours after Bayern's media director Markus Horwick described claims the club had approached Guardiola to take over as "complete rubbish", and Guardiola himself said he hoped to manage in the Premier League.
Chelsea and Manchester City were strongly linked with Guardiola, with Roman Abramovich signalling his intention to take him to Chelsea by pointedly handing Rafael Benítez the title of "interim manager".
Guardiola, 41, replaced Frank Rijkaard at Barca in 2008 and during his four years at the Nou Camp he led the club to 13 trophies, making him the most successful coach in the club's history.

When you got talnet like you got in Barca it makes it all easier to win, but even tho you have the best players you still need a coach to bring them toghter otherwise it will end like Real Madrid when they had all the best footballers on the team and didn't win shit. FC Bayern has loads of potential we have been in the Champiosn League final twice in 3 years now we just need to bloody win.
