Farewell interview with Tymo
I imagine everyone loves Anatoliy Tymoshchuk like I do. They club conducted a farewell interview with Tymo here. A highlight?
What's your impression of new coach Pep Guardiola?
Very good. He's open and relaxed, his German is already very good and he explains everything in German. Certainly some of the things he does are new to us, but every coach has his own ideas and style. I think he's a very good coach who's taken charge of the best team.
Bayern beat TSV Regen 9-1 in second friendly
Seven thousand people showed up in Regen to see the triple winners romp to a 9-1 victory over local side TSV. The goalscorers for Bayern were Julian Green (3), Patrick Weihrauch (2), Thomas Müller, Emre Can, Alessandro Schöpf, and Toni Kroos.
Regen actually got on the board first thanks to a goal from Daniel Kopp. The biggest thing to take away from the two friendlies is the opportunities for the club's youth players to get minutes with several first team players in front of Pep.
Speaking of youth players...
It appears as though Julian Green has been promoted from the U19 team to the reserves for the upcoming season. He will either join up with the reserves in Trentino, or he may be one of the players Pep keeps around for a little more training with the first team.
