"The fans cheered. They are not fools; they realized the same as me: the players gave everything for the shirt"
Pep Guardiola surprised everyone this Thursday at a press conference talking about the best time as Bayern coach: Guardiola said that one of the matches he keeps best memory of is the elimination of the Champions League against FC Barcelona last year in the semifinals second leg.
"One of my best moments at Bayern Munich was the defeat in the semifinals against FC Barcelona. The fans cheered. They are not fools; they realized the same as me: the players gave everything for the shirt," he Catalan coach said.
That match in Fussbal Arena, in fact, was born by Bayern 3-2 with goals from Lewandowski and Müller (and two by Neymar for Barça), a result that was not enough to come back the 3-0 of the first leg, with the unforgettable display of Messi.
