Bayern Munich defender David Alaba believes Pep Guardiola has reinvented the game with his unique philosophy.
Bayern have won two Bundesliga titles and a DFB Pokal under Guardiola and look to win the UCL, before the Spaniard joins City.
And Alaba is certain the German club couldn’t have been successful without the former Barcelona coach.
“The coach is very demanding but it’s really amazing to train with him,” Alaba was quoted as saying by the Guardian. “It’s like he reinvented football.
“He thinks about football 24 hours a day, he’s always explaining to us on the screen what’s the best way to attack, best way to defend, the best way to play with the ball.
“Now that he’s here in his third year, we understand him better as well. We wouldn’t be as successful without him. He’s given us the best tools, you can see it in our game.
“His detailed preparation makes it easier for us to beat opponents. And to beat them better as well.
“Will Guardiola’s departure at the end of the season affect us? We have goals and dreams that we work very hard for to achieve. We don’t have a lot of space in our heads to worry about other things.”
