Hard Premier League slog would take Pep Guardiola into the unknown

“After Chelsea had won the league last season, José Mourinho made a not especially veiled dig at Pep Guardiola. … The jibe was unfair in a number of ways but it carried enough truth to sting. At Bayern Munich, Guardiola took over a club that had just won the treble. Inevitably, in terms of trophies won, the trajectory has been downward: two Bundesliga titles have followed and there will surely be a third this year but in each of the past two seasons Bayern have gone out of the Champions League in the semi-finals. In terms of the football played, though, Guardiola’s reign has been a triumph. Bayern stand in the avant-garde of football’s tactical evolution.” Guardian – Jonathan Wilson
