The Bundesliga, as well as the entire German football, has experienced a big decline in the last few years. The strongest teams of the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund, and Bayern Munich, are far from the quality they once had.
The legend of Munich, Bastian Schweinsteiger, emphasized that the German football lost its charm after the arrival of Pep Guardiola. The Spanish expert wanted to play short passes and gave the greatest importance to that. Bastian believes that the race, the fight to the last minute, is exactly what is the identity of the Germans.
We all know how many times the Germans managed to get back into the match. Their passion for football is really special. “When Pep Guardiola joined Bayern Munich, when he came to the country, everyone believed we have to play this kind of football, like short passes and everything.
We were kind of losing our values,” he said.
“I think most of the other countries were looking at Germany as a fighter, we can run until the end and everything. The strengths got lost through the last seven, eight years.
We forgot about that and were more focused on playing the ball nicely to each other. That's one of the reasons”.
Bayern Munchen and Pep Guardiola
However, this same Pep Guardiola is doing great things at Manchester City.
The leaders of this club hired a Spanish expert who brought them a large number of trophies. Of course, the latter, the Champions League trophy, is the most important to them. Bayern Munich experienced a big decline in the last two years.
A lot of things are necessary for them if they want to be one of the leaders on the international stage. Thomas Tuchel certainly knows how to do it, but he needs some time. This summer will be a great chance for the German expert to make big changes within the team. There are many names in the game, and we will see what the Bavarian giant will do.
