Magath sceptical about Guardiola

Former Bayern Munich coach Felix Magath is sceptical about Pep Guardiola's chances of outdoing current boss Jupp Heynckes.

• Blog: Clash of the titans

Heynckes, 67, will make way for former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola in the new season but Magath remains unsure about the appointment due to the unrealistic levels of expectation which are already beginning to gather pace.

"FC Bayern have hired a top man," he told German daily Die Welt. "But expectations will be enormous. This can also turn out to be a problem, if expectations are fuelled, which, as they are too high, he has to fall short of.

"When I say Bayern play better than ever before: How could Guardiola make them better? And just imagine Jupp Heynckes is to win three titles. There'd be none left for Guardiola."

Magath, a back-to-back domestic double-winner during his three-year spell in Bavaria from 2004 to 2007 also said that he believed Bayern are the best club in Europe at the moment.

"After Barcelona's defeat at Milan you have to assume they are," he said. "I am convinced they will reach the Champions League final. They play better than ever before.

"In any case, I have never seen them better. They have been able to play on that level since the start of the season. If they continue to keep it up chances are good that they can win the title.

"Jupp Heynckes does a great job. Without diminishing his work, I believe, the current shape Bayern are in, the extreme position play is down to Louis van Gaal. The club profits from the work he has done. Heynckes has taken on the structures and elaborated them, that is as important and valuable."
