After more than a year absence from the world of football, Spain’s
Pep Guardiola has been officially unveiled as Bayern Munich’s new head coach.
The 42-year-old, who won 14 trophies in four years at Barcelona, is Bayern’s biggest signing for the coming season as they eye more silverware. He replaces last year’s treble-winning boss Jupp Heynckes as coach of the Bavarians, but claimed he is looking forward to the challenge.
Guardiola has already brought Mario Gotze from Dortmund and has also been linked with a move for Polish international Robert Lewandowski.
The Spaniard will take his first training session at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.
