Soccer focus will shift to Germany after Guardiola capture

One thing we’ve prided ourselves here at All Sports Discussion is if you are interested in a sports topic, you can send it in and we’ll post. We’ll even discuss world “football” or as we know it soccer.

I actually have some co-workers from my day job that are season ticket holders of Bayern Munich. They will like this article!

The future of German club soccer appears to be in safe hands after the most sought-after head coach in world football – Pep Guardiola – agreed to join Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich next summer.

Guardiola, who made his name as manager of Barcelona between 2008 and 2012, is currently taking a year out of the sport to recharge his batteries before beginning again with a brand new project. Many fans in the football betting world expected the Spaniard to head to England and, most likely, take up the vacant managerial post at Chelsea.

With Chelsea’s billions on offer there was always the possibility Pep’s head would spin after mulling over a huge contract offer and the potentially enormous transfer funds at his disposal, but thankfully he has chosen footballing reasons over anything else for his next job.

The 42-year-old has agreed a three-year contract with the German champions in a deal that could spell the beginning of a new era of national club domination. For Germany’s top flight was considered one of the best in the world 30 years ago but since the economic expansion of English and Spanish soccer in the mid 1990s – plus the Bundesliga’s own competent financial regulations – it has failed to match rival leagues at the top of the club game, with the likes of Barca, Chelsea, and Manchester United always the favourites above the German sides in the bet365 latest football odds.

Since the global economic tightening, however, clubs that run a financially sustainable model are becoming far more attractive to managers and Guardiola has clearly been convinced Bayern can win trophies without simply buying them.

With a state-of-the-art stadium, world-renowned youth academy and a wealth of quality players already in their squad, Bayern is primed to dominate European soccer over the next five years and they now have the right coach in charge to bring them that success.

Guardiola has already won three league titles and two Champions Leagues at Barcelona while overseeing their youth-to-first-team system. If Bayern can achieve the same success then the Bundesliga as a whole will benefit as media, supporters, players and sponsors re-enact the 1980s and focus their attention on the German game.
