The perfect choice for him was Bayern after Barca, but I don't know to tell anymore if he was the right choice for Bayern. It was the best environment to start from, for someone who spent all his life in one club...
He wouldn't have received a better treatment elsewhere, let anyone say what they want.
Bayern was a perfect machine from top to bottom before he came, that meaning staff and team... what he wouldn't have found elsewhere.
IMO Bayern with the appointment of Reschke made a big improvement in signings, I think we did better than Barca even when Pep was there and than most other European clubs with the signings. Probably the only regret remains that we didn't sign Neymar instead of Goetze, but that can also be excused and reasoned in a way.
Sir Alex admitted in 2013 that he admires Bayern's model and that was the model that needed to be imitated, not Barca's.
If you feel pity about the pressure that has been on Pep, just read what had Hitzfeld had to say about managing Bayern... so it's always been like this. In Munich, we don't accept defeats... live with it, Pep.
At least he found a board of directors that won't fire him and are patient, even when he tried really hard and gave his best in his first year in the CL semis.
In BuLi he came a year too late, it was all too easy... He couldn't have failed elsewhere but where he failed, CL semis. That's where improvement was required from him but he failed.
I'm sure that Pep knew what he'd find here, I don't think that he'd have joined us a few years back...
Take a deep breath and repeat after me… GOOS-FRA-BA... GOOSFRABA...
