Guardiola confirmed as Bayern Munich coach
Bayern Munich announced that Pep Guardiola will take over as the club’s new coach when Jupp Heynckes' contract expires this summer.
Bayern revealed that Heynckes, 67, will stay on in his post until the end of this season before retiring, at which point the former Barcelona coach will take over on a deal that runs until June 2016.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern's chief executive, said "We are delighted that we have managed to get Pep Guardiola whom several big clubs wanted and contacted. He is one of the most successful trainers in the world and we are sure that not only Bayern Munich but the whole of German football will benefit from what he brings."
