Heynckes And Pep Not Sharing Notes

Jupp Heynckes has rejected suggestions that he may ask Pep Guardiola for help when Bayern Munich take on Barcelona in the Champions League.

“Please respect me and my work,” he said. “I have never consulted anyone.”

With Guardiola set to take over from Heynckes in June, many have speculated as to whether they will help or hinder one another. But the German thinks that Pep has too much respect for his old club to plot their downfall.

“Pep Guardiola wouldn't do us any favours out of respect for his former club,” he said. He went on to say that Bayern is more than capable of preparing on their own.

“We have a great scouting department,” he said. “I have two scouts who make me a detailed work-up of every opponent. Moreover, I know everything about Barca. I know Spain football very well because I've always been interested in it, even after I left Spain.”

Speaking about the semi-final tie, Heynckes said that the draw has left them with a great game to look forward to.

“We'll see two very entertaining games. Both teams like to attack and have a solid defence with good tactical awareness.”

“Barcelona aren't just Messi. They have great players like Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Fabregas and Villa.”
