Very recently recorded as the club to have won the Bundesliga at the earliest ever stage of the football season, there’s quite a chance that the current Bayern Munich squad is one of, if not the strongest, ever assembled.
Given the club’s reputation for success in Europe, that’s saying something.
One might think that with Jupp Heynckes retiring at the end of the season, Bayern are losing a masterful tactician, whose exit will only mean the detriment of the club’s chances of baring further fruit.
That being said, Pep Guardiola, the man set to replace the outbound German, has been around the block, so to speak himself, and could make the German giants even bigger than they currently are.
With Guardiola leading them, Bayern Munich have a manager who’s already won the Champions League and is no stranger to stiff competition, thanks to his time with Barcelona.
Having reached at least the semi-finals of the last three Champions League tournaments, the Bavarians will be hoping that fourth time is the charm this year, aiming for a possible fifth next season.
