Guardiola Will Not Be Sacked

GuardiolaPep Guardiola has been told he has a job for life at Bayern Munich, after claiming he could be sacked, if he does not deliver this season.

The former Barcelona coach Guardiola led Bayern to four trophies in his first season in charge, but says the expectations at Bayern are such that a smaller return would not be tolerated in his second year.

However, the club’s chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, insists that is not the case.

“Bayern are never going to sack Pep Guardiola,” he told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper. “I can even put that in writing for you.” Rummenigge expects Bayern’s glorious run of results to continue unabated this season and in years to come, seeing no sign of his players being sated.

“We have two perfect years behind us, won eight titles and some of our players have even put the cherry on top with the World Cup,” he added. “And now we will continue setting records by being better than we’ve ever been after a World Cup.”

Bayern’s players showed that hunger by beating Borussia Monchengladbach in a penalty shootout on Saturday, with Robert Lewandowski on target, in a game which ended 2-2, Max Kruse netting twice for the Foals, who recovered from two goals down to force the penalties. — soccernet
