Pep Guardiola is probably one of the coolest guys in football. The former Barcelona manager is known for being one of the calmest manager’s in football, and even a slight wardrobe malfunction failed to de-compose the Spanish tactician during Bayern Munich’s thrashing off Porto.
The Spanish tactician masterminded a fantastic Champions League comeback last night as Bayern Munich thrashed FC Porto 6-1 to overturn a 3-1 loss in the first leg.
But just as Bayern Munich began to rip their way through a tepid FC Porto side, Guardiola’s trousers decided to do the same.
Guardiola then joked after the clash: “I’ll have to buy some new ones for the next match.”
But the chances are Guardiola did not sit at home with a needle and thread repairing the damage that evening.
The game finished 7-4 on aggregate after a scintillating Bayern Munich performance, which included goals from Thiago Alcantara, Jerome Boateng, Thomas Muller, Xabi Alonso and a brace from Robert Lewandowski.
Bayern’s European opponents will be desperate to avoid Pep Guardiola’s side in the next round as they brushed away a Porto side who arrived at the Allianz arena with a two-goal advantage.
The German giants are on course to claim the treble, with the side still competing in the DFB Pokal and the Champions League. Munich also sit twelve points clear at the top of the Bundesliga as they hope to repeat their treble heroics of 2013.
