Liverpool legend Carragher: Bayern Munich no easy option for Guardiola

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Pep Guardiola has taken on a huge task by joining Bayern Munich.

Carra wrote in the Daily Mail: "So Pep Guardiola has taken the ‘easy’ decision. By agreeing to join Bayern Munich and rebuffing advances from the Premier League, it is being suggested he is pursuing an uncomplicated life.

"Nothing could be further from the truth. It has often been said that Chelsea are obsessed with the Champions League but so, too, are Bayern Munich. Guardiola has been appointed to secure the trophy they so desire within the next three years.

"I attended the Champions League final last season and saw how deeply losing to Chelsea affected Bayern. For a club with such a proud history, it is staggering that they have only been crowned Europe’s best once in the last 37 years, and there will be an expectation on Guardiola to change that."
