Charity match for flood victims

Bayern Munich have announced that the club will play a charity match as a fundraiser to help the victims of the the terrible flooding that's taken place in parts of Bavaria. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Bavarian Minister President Horst Seehofer worked together to bring about the charity match.

Rummenigge:

"Our team has benefited from so much support from the people of Bavaria over recent weeks and months in the light of the dramatic images from the flooded areas, we now wish to give something back and contest a benefit match with our team to aid victims of the flood disaster."

Seehofer:

"It is very special when the world-leading football club sends out such a strong signal of solidarity with the people in the state. I would like to thank the management of FC Bayern and the team for this magnificent gesture."

The match will feature Bayern against a Regional XI in Passau.

Pep's learning German

Here's a good article today about Pep Guardiola learning German. Pere Guardiola, Pep's brother and agent, spoke about his work in learning the language so far.

"Pep is applying himself to the task as he always has - obsessively," Pere told German news magazine Spiegel. "Four hours every day, like a madman." There was no let-off either during a family visit in Barcelona at Easter: "It was absurd - you go and meet your brother for lunch and he spends the whole time talking German with his teacher."

Pep engrossing himself in the German language can be nothing but great news as we move forward into the Guardiola Era at Bayern Munich. Being able to communicate with the majority of the squad in their native language will be great for communication in and among the squad.
