The Mania & Hype surrounding Pep Guardiola and Bayern Munich

German Bundesliga giants FC Bayern Munich pulled off a coup by signing Pep Guardiola as their coach for the new 2013/14 season. The hype and international media coverage has reached unbelievable levels at the Bavarian giants.

FC Hollywood as FCB as also called for the stories and gossip that happen around the club are used to a lot of attention, but the hype surrounding the signing of Guardiola has reached unknown levels even for former greats like Franz Beckenbauer, Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Josep "Pep" Guardiola and Bayern Munich had been linked for months but it was somewhat globally expected that Guardiola in the end would sign for an English Premier League side, the only question being if it would be FC Chelsea, Manchester City or maybe even Manchester United.

But to the surprise of especially the English media, Guardiola chose Bayern Munich over the EPL which has given the German giants unknown levels of attention and coverage around the world.

Last weekend some Bayern Munich players were already annoyed when they repeatedly were being asked about Guardiola and not the ongoing season and Thomas Mueller put it nicely by saying that Guardiola will be at topic in the team from 00.01 h on July 1, 2013.

I am currently in India and even here Bayern Munich and Guardiola have been covered widely with big articles, which are rare except the club are once more on their way to India for a tour. FCB and the Bundesliga need to use this to push the league across the globe!
