Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola ‘to leave Bundesliga champions’

Pep Guardiola will next week announce he is to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season, according to reports in the German media, Sky Sport reports.

The former Barcelona coach said earlier this week he would make an announcement on his future before Christmas, but German newspaper Bildclaims he has ‘already sorted out his future’.

Last month Barcelona daily Sport reported he had already given his word to former Barca colleagues Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain, Manchester City’s chief executive and director of football respectively, that he would join them at the Etihad next season.

“Everything points to his leaving,” said Bild, adding that the 44-year-old was aware of the dangers of ‘out-staying his welcome if he remained at Bayern’.

“He is someone who enjoys a challenge and that is why he joined Bayern Munich in 2013.”

Guardiola has won two titles and a German Cup since taking over at the Allianz Arena in the summer of 2013 following a year out of football. Prior to that he won the Champions League twice, three La Liga titles and two Copa del Reys in a four-year spell at the Nou Camp.
