The Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has said that he is not only irritated by the media frenzy surrounding the arrival of Guardiola next season, but he is also unimpressed by the hype as well.
Bayern Munich recently revealed that Guardiola will become the next manager of the club after Jupp Heynckes will step down from his post and retire following this season. Guardiola is currently on sabbatical and he has been flooded by offers from clubs like Chelsea and Manchester city. He has been one of the in demand coaches across the world.
After a disappointing last season, Heynckes has managed to make Bayern Munich incredibly strong once again. They are currently top of the German Bundesliga table, while also having a sizeable nine-point advantage over the second placed team. They have also made it into the last 16 stage of the Champions League quite comfortably.
These achievements, though, have been overlooked by the German media since the announcement was made by the club. Heynckes clearly believes that his team should be given credit for doing well this season before praising the next manager of the club. Heynckes took over at the club two years ago and he has guided them to a Champions League final during this period.
"It would have been better to do this in the winter break. Before Christmas, during the holidays, because of the media hype that might interfere with the normal working day. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am the boss here. That has always been the case, no matter where I have worked," said the Bayern Munich manager, whose team will be facing the Premier league club Arsenal the last 16 stage of the European cup. Heynckes' position has been supported by many managers, who have said that the media should stop the attention for Guardiola temporarily.
