Pep To Face Barca With Bayern

One of Pep Guardiola’s first assignments as Bayern Munich manager will be a friendly against his former club, Barcelona.

Bayern and Barca announced on Wednesday night that the two elite sides of continental club football will contest a charity match in the European summer.

The match will take place at the Allianz Arena, and will be part of Bayern’s official celebrations for boss Uli Hoeness' 60th birthday, with all proceeds going to charity.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Barca President Sandro Rosell reached the agreement for the money-spinning match to take place at a meeting in Doha.

Bayern stunned the football world when they announced that they had won the heated race to secure Pep’s services.

The Catalan schemer is likely to inherit a Bundesliga title winning side, and Bayern will hope he can go on to replicate the success of 14 trophies in four years Guardiola achieved at the Camp Nou.
