The Germany international insisted that the former Barcelona star is the best coach in recent years, while Javi Martinez is also eagerly anticipating the manager’s arrival at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has nothing but appreciation for Pep Guardiola as he was recently reported to have signed a contract to become the Bavarian outfit’s coach at the end of the season. He also said that Pep is the
most successful trainer in the last four years.
The former FC Barcelona player will take charge of the Bavarian giants after current boss Jupp Heynckes will end his coaching career at the end of the campaign, and the defender believes that his side have got a brilliant manager
in Pep following his move to the Allianz Arena.
The full-back stated that everyone at the club is excited by his appointment. He suggested that Der FCB officials have done an amazing job to get the talented coach. He praised the top bosses and said that the players did not expect
a good quality tactician like Pep.
"Pep Guardiola has been the best coach of the last four or five years. All over the club and in the dressing room too, you sense huge anticipation," he was quoted as saying in an interview.
"It's a top transfer, a best-in-class solution. Respect for what our bosses have done. You're never guaranteed to bring in a really successful coach like this,” the former VfB Stuttgart player added.
Lahm revealed that this shows Die Roten’s commitment to win trophies, the strength in the side and what Heynckes has done for the team. He said that Heynckes has done a tremendous job as Bayern are fighting at all fronts.
"It shows the club’s good image, the quality in the team, and what our current coach has achieved. He has shaped a team who are contenders in all competitions," he finally concluded.
On the other hand, summer signing Javi Martinez is hoping to work with Guardiola. He has heard a lot from his international colleagues as they all say great things about the former Barca head coach from his time at the Nou Camp.
