Robben ‘surprised’ by Guardiola’s appointment at Bayern Munich

Goal :    Arjen Robben said he was surprised at Pep Guardiola’s decision to come to Bayern Munich, seeing it as something of a coup for the Bundesliga outfit.

Die Roten announced earlier this week that Guardiola would replace current coach Jupp Heynckes at the end of the season, ending speculation that the Spanish coach might head to the Premier League after his sabbatical.

The move caught many off guard, and Robben revealed that he was no exception when he spoke to reporters after Bayern’s 2-0 win over Greuther Furth as the club’s season resumed on Saturday.
