Pep Guardiola is Heading to...

I’m sure so many in the football world are surprised if not shocked of Pep Guardiola’s choice when he decided to manage a football club away from England. Everyone knows that Pep took a season long sabbatical after winning 14 trophies when he was the coach of Spanish giants Barcelona. It was Barca’s most successful seasons, winning almost trophy there is and became a dominant football club anywhere else. And as the 2012 season coming half way, the clock is ticking for him to reveal which club he will manage in 2013. 

Then comes the announcement which you all know already that it didn’t came from any English club, the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City who both have been linked and much to the latter as Man City had recently signed two of Guardiola’s former colleagues at Barca. 

It was the German club Bayern Munich who will get the services and expertise of Josep “Pep” Guardiola. He will be tied up with The Bavarians as he signed a three-year contract that will run until 2016. Pep will replace the current coach Jupp Heynckes when he decided last December not to extend his contract beyond the end of the current season. It was during that time also, before Christmas that Pep agreed to join the Bundesliga giants until, at least, 2016.
