Bayern Munich became the second team to win six titles in a calendar year after FC Barcelona in 2009. Pep Guardiola, former coach of the two teams, proposed a game to decide between the two monsters.
Bayern Munich continued their collection of trophies by winning the Club World Cup on Thursday after their victory against the Tigers (1-0) in the final. The Bavarians became the second team in history to win six consecutive titles after the Champions League, Bundesliga, European Super Cup, German Cup and Spanish Super Cup. Only Pep Guardiola’s Barça achieved this performance in 2009.
At the end of the Bavarian coronation, the Catalan coach, currently stationed on the Manchester City bench, praised the incredible season of the Bavarian club, which he coached for three years (2013-2016).
“I send you big congratulations for all these successes, for being the world champion club and especially for these six trophies, he said in a video uploaded by Bayern. I am so proud. Congratulations to all of you and especially Hansi (Flick, the coach), the players and the staff for this incredible thing. “
He didn’t stop there by offering a “7th title” match between Bayern and Barça to determine the best of the two clubs. And he is ready to call on one of his players at the time for that: Lionel Messi. “I would like to tell Hansi that you are only the second team to win six titles in a row, after Barcelona, he recalls. Maybe I can call Messi and company. We can play for the 7th title. . Tell me where and when, and we’ll be there! “
In his three seasons in Bavaria, Pep Guardiola has won seven titles, including three in the Bundesliga. He had failed three times at the semi-finals of the Champions League. He then joined Manchester City where he is still in office.
