Bayern Munich may have overturned a 1-0 half time scoreline to win their eleventh home match of the season 3-1 against lowly Darmstadt 98 but it seems some of the home fans were not happy.

Despite briefly moving 11 points clear of second-place Dortmund, a section of the home support unfurled a banner suggesting that they never did care much for their Spanish manager anyway. 

It was not quite “Auf Wiedersehen, Pep” but the message was clear.

Now that football’s worst kept secret is out and it has been confirmed that the Catalan will be the man in the Manchester City hot-seat next season, things could get a bit tricky if Bayern were to meet City in the latter stages of the Champions League.

Next season, the affable Italian will have a chance to claim a fourth Champions League crown and become the first manager to win three titles with three different clubs. This would be a great way to welcome him into the Bayern Munich family and at the same time, plunge a metaphorical dagger into the heart of Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese may not be the “enemy of football” but there may well be mixed emotions and divided loyalties throughout Europe if Mourinho were to finally claim his own personal holy grail.
