Ex-Man Utd star Hargreaves: Bayern Munich great move for Guardiola

Former Manchester United and Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves can understand Pep Guardiola's decision to move to Germany.

It was confirmed last night that former Barcelona coach Guardiola would take charge of Bayern at the end of this season.

"Obviously Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United are some of the biggest clubs in the world but Bayern Munich is easily among that top five," Hargreaves said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

"Bayern Munich is the Man United of Germany. They're both the biggest clubs in their countries. Germany is a bigger country than England and with 80 million people it is probably the healthiest league from an economic standpoint in all of Europe.

"I think all things considered it will be a great move for himself. He'll have a great team at his disposal, great resources and the fans are going to love to see what Bayern Munich have to offer in the coming season."
