He cites fatigue and the need to take some time off for his decision, but said he sees himself coaching again sooner rather than later. So, why not at Bayern?
With Pep resigning from Barcelona, and wanting to recharge his batteries, what do you think the chances are that he takes over at Bayern, when Jupp finishes his contract after next season?
Jupp is in his late 60s, and was originally thinking about retiring anyway, before Bayern came calling (both before and after his Leverkusen stint).
Bayern has a good relationship with him, and he has a lot of respect for the club. When Barcelona was at the Saebenerstrasse earlier this season for a training session, Pep was impressed with the facilities.
He has already proven that he knows how to handle the big egos of star players, and knows how to coach a team loaded with skill. He's a guy that instills respect among players, but also generates admiration (very similar to Heynckes). What's not to love?
So, what do you guys think?
