Manuel Neuer stands behind the fact that Guardiola didn’t have a bad season at Bayern Munich, describing his tenure as sensational.
Guardiola won the BuLi, three consecutive times, two DFB Pokal, uefa super cup and club world cup, with the champions league proving a tad bit elusive for the former Barcelona coach.
Nevertheless, Neuer feels the 45-year-old has helped Bayern forward in all aspects.
“The three years under Guardiola have been sensational,” Neuer told Kicker.
“We should acknowledge that our coach did not fail in any area, including the Champions League, even if he did not win it with Bayern. Winning the double definitely was a happy ending to his time at Bayern.
“Working with Pep was sensational. We played the best football out there both in the Champions League and in Germany, better than all other teams. Guardiola deserves credit for that.
“Guardiola has moved Bayern forward in all aspects. I have learned a lot from him both as a footballer and as a human being.
“If I had to give Bayern’s season a grade, it would be a one.”
