Bayern Munich players happy to joke about Guardiola return

Bayern Munich players are happy to joke about Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola making a return to the club.

For now, interim coach Hansi Flick is in charge of Bayern, who are third in the league, stepping in for the sacked Niko Kovac.

But Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka have teased a potential return for Guardiola, who has been linked with a move back to Bavaria by reports in Germany.

“I think you know Pep better than me," Goretzka joked to Neuer.

And Neuer replied: “Pep knows you too for sure!"

In Germany, it's been suggested Guardiola tops Bayern's shortlist of names to succeed Kovac as permanent coach next season.
