Heynckes: Guardiola made the right choice
Goal : Jupp Heynckes has revealed he is pleased a “smart man” like Pep Guardiola is going to replace him at Bayern Munich.
Guardiola, formerly of Barcelona, signed a three-year deal with the Bundesliga leaders on Wednesday which will see him takeover at the club in the summer.
And Heynckes, who will be retiring at the end of the current campaign to make way for the Spaniard, believes they could not have found a more suitable candidate for the job.
“[I'm being succeeded] by a younger coach who has been very successful. I think it’s good. My successor is a smart man. He has analyzed the top European teams and has recognized that Bayern will be the team with whom he can have the most success,” he told reporters.
