Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus on Guardiola's decision to leave Bayern.



Germany and Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has taken a dig at coach Pep Guardiola for deciding to leave the Bundesliga champions at the end of the season for Premier League side Manchester City.

The 54-year-old, who said Guardiola gave much disturbance off the football pitch at Bayern, says he understands why the best coach in the world has decided to leave the Allianz Arena.

"Perhaps he wanted a new challenge," Matthaus told Sky Sports. "Of course I can understand Pep - his salary must be insane. And he wants to experience something new - despite the fact that he already had the best team in Europe.


"Bayern fulfilled every wish, no matter what Guardiola wanted: the players, the coaches and even the doctors.

"He caused much disturbance off the field. But he is one of the best coaches on the planet. With the amount of money in circulation, I can understand Pep."
