He's going to fantastic club with great history, success, philosophy, stadium, fans, finance & even players. But Bayern is a club deeply connected with its legends like Gerd Müller, Franz Beckenbauer, Paul Breitner, Mehmet Scholl, Lothar Matthäus, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Giovane Elber, Oliver Kahn, Stefan Effenberg and so on...Most of them have more than just their say on how the team functions and plays and is managed. Pep will surely come there to instill his football culture. Hopefully, there isn't an ego clash.
On a probability of 0.000001 %, he'll do an outstanding Scorpion save if he dives downwards successfully like he often does. :p Or perhaps, he'll hurt himself on the other probability. Imagine Alves with Cech-like helmet.
My only issue was that with Ronaldinho and Eto'o, Barca's way of getting rid of them wasn't right. These are 2 players who contributed a lot to that club. Should have been treated as legends with much honorable farewell...
Luckily, Messi doesn't get injured anymore. Even his knock in that CL match wasn't serious. But I get a feeling that all teams in CL are gonna treat Messi pretty roughly henceforth. Which, obviously, shouldn't come as a surprise.
Well, yeah, if you count starting line-up but that being said, Spain will mostly play with 5 midfielders and 1 false 9.
While Catalonia would more tend to be 3 mid, 1 false 9 & two attacking wingers in Tello/Cuenca/Bojan. So, Spain's mid will remain nearly unmatched. Especially, when you count the fact that those 5 midfielders will consist of likes like Alonso, Iniesta, Silva, Cazorla, Mata, Isco, Michu, Martinez ect...
