Does Guardiola need a Champions League in Germany?

Ever since Pep Guardiola arrived to Bayern Munich on June of 2013, the Spanish manager has had a fairly impressive time with a number of titles having been secured. Bayern Munich are the undisputed champions of England as the club has successively been winning the Bundesliga and they appear to do it with relative ease in each season.

The FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup and the DFB Pokal Cup are all of the titles that Guardiola since being named as the head coach of German club but there is one piece of silverware that he is missing and it’s the Champions League.

The Champions League is widely considered to be the most important title at club level and it’s the one that Guardiola is lacking in Germany. The only other ones he doesn't have are the World Cup and the European Championships titles! Whilst it might be too soon for him to take part in Euro 2016, it's certain that he'll be looking for a role as a National team manager at some point.

This is the last chance that Guardiola has to win the Champions League with Bayern Munich as it’s his final season at the Allianz Arena as he will be making a move to Manchester City in a few months’ time.

Even though Pep Guardiola has already lifted a fairly big amount of titles in his relatively short time in charge of Bayern Munich, there are critics out there that do not consider Pep Guardiola’s time in Germany as a successful one but the Spanish coach has emerged and stated that even if he doesn’t secure the prestigious European silverware, he will still consider his stay at the Allianz Arena as a successful one.

Bayern Munich’s Pep Guardiola said: "I'm not dependent on winning the Champions League. My time at Bayern will have been amazing anyway. We have twice reached the semifinals but sometimes you forget that there are many great clubs in Europe who all have the same goal. What have you done to reach the goal? That is the most important thing."

Truth be told, Pep Guardiola is already one of the most influential figures in the world of football who has proven his worth not only as a manager but also as a former player and even if he fails to win the Champions League with Bayern Munich, he still has had a fairly impressive campaign at the Allianz Arena and it shouldn’t be overlooked.
