Bayern München played the best football in the club’s history under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola, according to former Bavarians star Paul Breitner.

“Pep gave Bayern its most beautiful, attractive and best football the club has ever seen,” Breitner told TZ. “I am not judging him on what Bayern did in the Champions League, but on his legacy. And his legacy is amazing.”
“Pep launched the third stage of a multistage rocket at Bayern. Louis van Gaal ignited the first stage by bringing his possession-based philosophy to the club. Jupp Heynckes then added movement to that philosophy during the second stage.”
“Nobody could predict what would happen anymore. And then Pep perfected matters by bringing even more flexibility and pace. He used the foundation laid by his two predecessors and perfected matters.”
