Beckenbauer Reckons Ferguson Retirement Was Perfect

Franz Beckenbauer reckons that the timing of the retirement of the former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was absolutely perfect.

Beckenbauer was talking to a British sports channel after the second leg of the Champions League quarter final tie between United and Bayern Munich and during that interview of his, he made this statement.


It’s almost time for Manchester United to battle and play against what will be their biggest and toughest match of the season as they have to face off against Bayern Munich for the 2nd leg of the Champions League which will be played at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich’s sensational season has seen them already being crowned as the champions of the German league despite there still are more than 3 matches left to be played until the season concludes.


Bayern Munich sealed a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after a 3-1 aggregate win over Arsenal. This was after the club managed a 1-1 draw in the second leg at the Allianz arena. After a goalless first half, Bayern Munich took the lead early on in the second half through Bastian Schweinsteiger, who entered into the penalty box unmarked with a trademark late run.


Julian Draxler is on the radar of many different clubs which are keeping close tabs on the 20 years old German midfielder of Schalke 04. Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all were heavily linked with the promising youngster.

The Sporting director of Bayern Munich, Matthias Sammer has recently admitted that the club has sparked interest in signing Draxler but that nothing can be certain regarding the future of the player of Schalke 04.


The manager of Bayern Munich, Pep Guardiola, is interested in the Brazilian international David Luiz who is a contracted player of the English Premier League club Chelsea at this point of time.

According to the reports, Guardiola has the desire to work with Luiz since the time he was in charge at Barcelona and he is now ready to spend a big amount on him.

Luiz’s contract at Stamford Bridge is not even close to get expired. He is contracted there for the next 4 years.

Bayern mocks Dortmund video

Bayern Munich, the Champions League winners, has stoked the fire before of the most eagerly anticipated match of this weekend in Europe. The German giants would go to play league rivals Borussia Dortmund this Saturday. These two teams have won 2 trophies each in the past 4 seasons and contended in the Champions League final last season.


Bayern Munich recently managed a 4-0 win over Schalke in a very good team performance. This has earned the praise of manager Guardiola, who has rated this match as the best Bayern Munich have played since his arrival.

Bastian Schweinsteiger opened the scoring for Bayern Munich before striker Mario Mandzukic doubled their advantage. Bayern Munich then increased the advantage with goals from Franck Ribery and Claudio Pizarro to go top of the table. They had recently lost the advantage to Borussia Dortmund, but their main rivals could only draw earlier in the day.


Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich team prepare to face Frankfurt, who are bottom of the table following their defeat in the opening game of the season. Frankfurt were defeated 6-1 on the opening game against Hertha Berlin, and are the favourites to go down this season according to the online betting markets.

It is a result that puts the Bayern Munich vs Frankfurt match as a very difficult encounter according to Guardiola. He has said that the bottom team will be extremely pumped up for this encounter and they will be looking to get revenge.


Bayern Munich came into the German Super Cup match during the weekend against Borussia Dortmund looking to carry on their impressive form from pre-season.

After the arrival of Guardiola, the club has been looking to change its tactics and the style of play in a seamless manner. This seems to have so far worked in the pre-season matches, as they have had some impressive results. The 2-0 win over Barcelona is one of the several great results Bayern Munich have enjoyed during this period, but they slumped to a 4-2 defeat against Dortmund.


In his first press conference as the Bayern Munich manager, Pep Guardiola has stated that he knows the pressure that will come in his way, but he is prepared to handle it. Guardiola has replaced Heynckes as the manager of Bayern Munich after a year long sabbatical.

In his four years at Barcelona, Guardiola has managed to establish himself as one of the biggest names in world football. He led the Spanish club to an unprecedented 14 titles during this period including two Champions League titles as well.
