Pep Guardiola to Bayern Munich: All the Best Twitter Reaction

Former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola put an end to all the speculation linking him with a dozen different new jobs on Wednesday as he confirmed he will join Bayern Munich at the end of the 2012-13 season.

Needless to say his decision and subsequent announcement had the inhabitants of the football world chattering madly amongst themselves about Pep, covering everything from his choice of country to how many Barcelona players would follow him to Munich.

Current head coach Jupp Heynckes will retire at the end of the season, with Guardiola taking charge immediately thereafter on a three-year contract with the Bundesliga club. Bayern currently sit atop the table and are nine points clear, so there is every likelihood that Pep will be taking over a title-winning side for his second top-flight job in the game.

Here's a total recall of all the best reaction from Twitter:

Bayern Munich's official club account broke the news first, on Jan. 16.

It wasn't long before the likes of Franz Beckenbauer had his say on the decision, while a whole host of other players and coaches weighed in with their views too.

Rafa Benitez has been said to be keeping Guardiola's chair warm - who will now get the full time job at Chelsea?

Media outlets all over Europe quickly took up the challenge of analysing the new route for the former Barcelona boss and what the implications were for other teams and coaches.

Guardiola's own quotes about the appointment were also posted to add to the occasion.

As one of the game's most successful managers over the past five years, there is no surprise in the amount of commotion that his return to football has caused.

Bayern Munich will be hoping he can bring plenty of that success to Germany next season, especially in Europe. If he does, then an already-formidable outfit will really become the one team to beat during 2013-14.
