The Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has said that he is extremely delighted with the current squad that he has at his disposal. After failing to win the league title for the second consecutive season, Bayern Munich decided to strengthen in a number of areas.
As a result, several new signings have been made, although the club has not splashed out a lot of money on most of the signings. Due to the suspensions for the Champions League final, Jupp Heynckes had a relatively weak squad at his disposal. No, he will be able to rely on a much larger pool of players.
The former Athletic Bilbao manager has said that there was not a lot of options available for him last season, but he can have no complains about the squad that he has at his disposal. Javi Martinez and Claudio Pizarro are amongst the main arrivals at the Allianz arena this summer. The Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez has been signed for the record € 40 million. He is regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, and his addition will certainly strengthen the team according to the manager. Jupp Heynckes has said that he did not rely heavily upon Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery this time around.
"It was a real delight. It reflects the spirit in this team, and I thought it was first-class. The players respect the fact that others will play for 20 or 25 minutes, or from the start. Arjen came and said: 'Boss, I’m not feeling great. We have such a good team and so many players. It's better if someone who's 100 percent fit and capable plays instead of me'," said the manager after the close of the transfer window. Heynckes has said that he is satisfied with the signings made by the club.
