Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola seems to be having the toughest times right now at the Allianz Arena, after the 43-year-old Spaniard responded to the club president’s criticism of his tactics by saying the club must decide if he is the “right one for the job”.
Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer lashed out at Guardiola after his side crashed out of the Champions League semi-finals following a 5-0 aggregate defeat at the hands of Real Madrid on Tuesday night, when the club chief said his team should attack more and score goals rather than keeping possession, and admitted “something is not right” with the club that conquered Europe last season.
He also mocked the German champions that relegation-threatened Hamburg can beat such a “battered” team this weekend in the league.
Guardiola has since cast doubt over his future at the German club and his continuity with the Bavarians remain uncertain as the laconic former Barcelona boss, who has already won the Bundesliga title in his first season in charge with seven matches left to play, is beginning to express frustration over doubts of his managerial impetus by the club bosses
Speaking in a press conference ahead of Bayern’s Bundesliga clash against Hamburg on Saturday, Guardiola said:
“The club must decide if the coach is the right one for the club.
“I have my ideas as a coach. I must convince the players and coach them that way.’
“Next season, we will play 100 percent with my ideas. I can’t coach this club or players without believing in my ideas.
“If you lose 4-0, something is wrong. I realised after 5/10 minutes we had a problem against real Madrid.
“When you lose, I always look at myself to see what I did wrong and Look to the future,” he added.
