Ever since Pep Guardiola arrived to the Allianz Arena as the new manager of the German club in January of 2013, Guardiola has managed to win 2 successive Bundesliga titles which is a fairly impressive accomplishment but fans and their own players are expecting to see more.
The Champions League is the biggest and most important title that any club can win and this is what Pep Guardiola has to achieve in order to fully alleviate and take a break from all of the pressure that is surrounding him.
To be completely fair, Pep Guardiola did bad luck in the Champions League of the previous season after his 2 star players: Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben both were unable to play due to injuries and had to miss out from Bayern Munich’s Champions League match against Barcelona which concluded with the Spanish club claiming the victory.
Bayern Munich has been defeated and eliminated from their 2 previous Champions League seasons and these eliminations arrived during the semi-final stages of the European competition.
In order to avoid going through another injury disaster, Pep Guardiola has signed Arturo Vidal and Douglas Costa for a combined total of €67 million. Bayern Munich did suffer a big blow in the summer transfer window after offloading Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester United but nonetheless, Guardiola still has a star studded team that should and are indeed aiming to win more titles than just the domestic league.
Pep Guardiola is reaching his final season as the manager of Bayern Munich and unless he decides to pen a contract extension, it will most certainly be his last year with the German cluband the Spanish manager would like to end his time in the Allianz Arena with a huge bang, there is certainly no bigger bang that can be made than winning the Champions League and becoming the new kings of Europe.
