Bayern Munich midfielder, Joshua Kimmich has stated he does not miss former manager Pep Guardiola, despite the role he played in his development.
The 21-year-old grew into an important first team player under Guardiola, with the Spaniard describing their relationship as that of father and son.
He has downplayed the importance of Guardiola on his career, and spoke highly of Carlo Ancelotti.
“I do not miss Guardiola. This is simply the way things go in football,” Kimmich told AZ.
“I had a coach at Leipzig as well who really helped me improve, Alexander Zorniger. It is not a bad thing for a player to have a number of coaches, because that will teach you different things.
“I did not see Pep as my footballing father, that was just something impulsive he said. But of course, it was great that Pep believed in me. But he did help me become a better player last season.
“Ancelotti also believes in me. I got plenty of playing time before the winter break. But I have set the bar higher for myself. I joined Bayern from a 2. Bundesliga side last term. I am not a Germany international who played at the Euros.”
