Pep Guardiola may have stayed silent since it was announced he would be Bayern Munich's next coach, but speaking last week the Spaniard admitted his huge success at Barcelona means the pressure of expectation will be on him when he makes his return to the game.

Guardiola, currently on a year-long sabbatical in New York after leaving Barcelona last May, has agreed a three-year deal at Bayern and will take over at the end of the season when current boss Jupp Heynckes retires. Guardiola won 14 trophies during an incredible four years in charge at the Nou Camp, including three Primera Division titles and two Champions League crowns.

He is also credited with moulding a Barca side which many class as the greatest team of all time. Speaking to FIFA.com, the 41-year-old admitted his time at Barca has put added pressure on him going into his next post, but he said: "Yes, but I wouldn't change it!"
