Former Bayern Munich and England midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes Pep Guardiola has made a shrewd decision in choosing the Bundesliga above the Barclays Premier League.

Guardiola was named as the next Bayern manager on Tuesday, with his three-year contract beginning in the summer when Jupp Heynckes steps down and retires.

Hargreaves said on BBC Radio Five: "There aren't many clubs within European football that have the stability and structure that Bayern Munich has in place."
