Guardiola's a genius, gushes Bayern boss Rummenigge

06 August 2014, 15:10

Berlin - Pepe Guardiola is a genius of a coach, Bayern Munich boss Karl Heinz Rummenigge gushed in an interview for Wednesday's Sport Bild.

"This man is a genius. I've seen a lot of coaches but this one is extraordinary, this coach is a gift from above," Rummenigge said.

Guardiola arrived in Munich in June 2013 from Barcelona, with a contract running until June 30, 2016.

The 43-year-old led Bayern to victory in the European Super Cup, the Club World Cup and then the German Cup/league double, before crashing out of the Champions League in the semi-final.

"Pep is not a long-contract man," Rummenigge said.

"What I understand is that in southern Europe, they like to live for the now. But if Pep feels good, then he will stay. And that includes after 2016.

"But there's no sense in talking about a contract extension this season. I think the soonest we do that will be a year before his current contract comes to an end."

Bayern play Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup on August 13 before lining up against Wolfsburg at home in their opening Bundesliga match on August 22.
