The year of 2014 is reaching its end and certain managers and players are taking their time to reflect on what has happened in the past 12 months, one of these figures is Pep Guardiola as the coach of Bayern Munich is well aware that everything has been going superbly well for the German coach that he is in charge of but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the next year will be the same.

Rummenigge not happy with Louis Van Gaal

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the president of Bayern Munich, does not think that Louis Van Gaal is as good a coach as Pep Guardiola.

Van Gaal had been in charge of Bayern Munich for a couple of seasons and If Rummenigge is to be believed, he was kind of bullish in that period.

Van Gaal, however, had a lot of results to show in his very first season in charge. Not only did he guide the Bavarians to the Premiership title, but, also, to the Cup glory.

He could have completed the treble if not for that loss against Internazionale in European Cup final.

Guardiola says squad is improving constantly

Pep Guardiola has said that Bayern Munich have been improving with every game this season and he has possibly seen the best performance from his players in the 4-0 win over Hannover during the weekend. Bayern Munich sustained their four-point advantage at the top of the table after this victory, which was especially important given that there nearest rivals Hoffenheim also managed a win from their match. Realistically, this is seen as a one horse race already in the Bundesliga this campaign since some of the strongest teams like Borussia Dortmund are languishing in the bottom of the table.

Munich likely to sell to United

During the summer, there were several reports that Manchester United were trying to sign key Bayern Munich players like Toni Kroos and Thomas Müller in one single go. The Premier League outfit have an incredible financial muscle due to a raft of commercial deals in the last few years. They are only second to Real Madrid when it comes to the overall revenue, which easily crosses more than £ 400 million per season. Despite the overwhelming popularity of Bayern Munich, they simply cannot come close to the English club in terms of finances.

Jackett Still Interested IN Wood

Kenny Jackett, the man in charge at Wolverhampton Wanderers, has said that the talks are still going on between him and the Leicester City management regarding the New Zealand forward Chris Wood.
Wood, who had joined Leicester just the previous season, is under contract at the King Power Stadium till the summer of 2016.
Jackett is not sure though if he would be able to seal the Wood deal before his team’s next match.
Talking to the reporters about Wood’s possible signing, the Wolves boss said, “We are trying to negotiate terms. Let’s see if we reach any conclusion.”

Rodgers Attempts To Reach Agreement With Shaqiri

The manager of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers, is trying hard to reach an agreement with Bayern Munich over the transfer of the Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri.

With the possibility of Luis Suarez making his way away from England this summer, Rodgers is keen to bring in some attacking quality at the Anfield and he is already supposed to have a couple of good deals in the form of Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.

The official announcement of Lallana deal has not been made though, but, it is believed to be sealed by Liverpool.

Mandzukic Confirms Leave Of Munich

Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic has finally confirmed rumours that he is set to leave the German club at the end of the season. The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal over the last few months. This is because manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly unhappy with his playing style, which does not fit into his philosophy. Guardiola is a fan of small players who like to play the football on the ground. Mandzukic, though, is a player who made his name due to the physical style of football that also helped Bayern Munich lift three major titles in 2013.

Rummenigge Announces Muller Sale

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has stunned the club fans by admitting that star striker Thomas Müller could be sold in the summer. There have been a lot of speculation regarding the future of Müller in the last few weeks. The club has been in contract negotiations with the 24-year-old for a while now. However, it looks like they are quite far away from agreeing a deal. The future of midfielder Toni Kroos has also been in doubt since the player has only 12 months left on his contract. Müller, on the other hand, has just over two years left on his deal.


Having already secured the Bundesliga title, some players of Bayern Munich and even the coach himself Pep Guardiola have stated that the league has now taken a lower level of importance and this was evident when Bayern Munich played against Augsburg and suffered a 0-1 defeat.

Pep Guardiola has defended his decision of fielding players which aren’t usually in his starting lineup as the former Barcelona coach announced that he is now taking into more consideration, the Champions League than anything else.


Bayern Munich go into the second leg of the Champions League match against Arsenal with a 2-0 lead on aggregate, but manager Pep Guardiola says that the German club cannot afford to get complacent just as they did last season.

Bayern Munich went into the second leg with a similar score at the same stage last season. They were almost knocked out of the competition after Arsenal produced a stunning comeback to win 2-0 at the Allianz arena. It was only due to away goals that Bayern Munich progressed and later went on to win the competition.
