Bayern Munich had an exceptional 2012/2013 season, managing the historic triple: the Champions League trophy, the Bundesliga title and DFB Pokal. Besides all this, managed to win the most points in domestic competition (91), finishing 25 points above the 2nd place, Borussia. Heynckes’s players have won the title with six rounds before the final, another record set by the Bavarians.

In the Champions League had a brilliant run, managing to overcome Juventus into the quarters (2-0 in first round, 2-0 in return) and put it down on Barcelona in the semifinals, defeating them in a way that no one would have expected: 7-0 on aggregate (4-0 in first round, 3-0 in away). In the final they won 2-1 against rivals Dortmund, but they controlled the game from start to finish.

All the great performance put on guard Guardiola, who now have to keep the team at least on this line, and the pressure on his shoulders will be huge. But former Catalan coach get used to that from the time spent at Camp Nou.

“In a big club, you always have a lot of pressure and I have a lot of pressure here, but I know this.” Said Guardiola to The Mirror.

“I am taking over a team who were extraordinary last season. They won four titles – three plus the Supercup – but, when you are coach of Bayern Munich, no matter what the situation is, you have always got to play well and have always got to win.”

“For me he it is a great honour to succeed him [Heynckes] and I hope to maintain the level the team played at last season. I want to maintain this high level and that is my challenge. There is lots of pressure, but I’ve got to accept it and be capable of coping.” Added the new tactician from the Allianz Arena.
