Unlikely, most probably it will be a meaningless Bundesliga match after we already won the treble 8)

Well, the last Bundesliga match is before the DFB pokal final and the CL final, soo..


Really? :-/

Don't the BuLi and Pokal usually end after? I'm confused.

Nah, it's almost always this way. But the Pokal final was after the CL when we won the treble.

Huh? I'm pretty sure last season's (disgusting) CL final wasn't the last football match I watched :-/ I think.

Perhaps a role as assistant coach to Carlo is not completely unlikely since H. Gerland will move to his new position within our youth centre this summer

I think his last great game was Leipzig... And before that maybe Bremen, but I tend to say Atlético rematch... (Ironically, these are all also games he scored)...

Schweinsteiger in his prime was no worse than Alonso in his prime and especially not than today's Alonso...

Different player? Well, you can toss that into any discussion... His position is the one where there's arguably the biggest pool of talent - so that's a very very daring statement... (also, you were talking about players in general...)


You don't think Schweinsteiger is worse than Alonso currently????
Alonso can at least get a game........


Read again, understand, then get back to me... ;)

No one heard the last part? Carlo said Xabi has to stay 2 years with him to learn! So maybe he IS taking that assistant job!

He speaks very highly for our club and seems he admires everything regarding Bayern despite being a "foreigner" from a completely different environment while being extremely successful in his career, I honestly think that his praise for us and admiration are genuine and will lead him at sometime in the future here at a different role.

I may be hearing it wrong but I thought Carlo was saying they'd spent two years together already, one year at Bayern together and one at Real Madrid?

Bayern Munich's Xabi Alonso will make a good manager - Pep Guardiola
Pep Guardiola has predicted that Xabi Alonso will make a great manager after the Bayern Munich midfielder announced his retirement at the end of the season.

Former Bayern boss Guardiola brought Alonso to the Allianz Arena and the pair won two Bundesliga titles before Guardiola moved to Manchester City last summer.

They had previously been rivals in Spain when Guardiola's Barcelona were fighting for the title with Alonso's Real Madrid.

But Guardiola was impressed with the 35-year-old and said that as well as being a hugely influential footballer, he took keen interest in the preparation and tactics for matches.

"We were rivals, big rivals when he was at Real Madrid, and after I was so lucky to have him in Munich," Guardiola told a news conference ahead of City's FA Cup clash with Middlesbrough on Saturday.

"He will come back soon as a manager. I bet, wherever he wants, he will become a manager and will be good.

"How the people speak about him -- all the managers that he had in his career -- is like a human being. One of the best midfielders I've ever seen in my life.

"He understands the game and has curiosity to understand the game. He knew during the weeks what we would have to do to win the next games, to beat them. He already had the curiosity to know.

"I love to work with these kinds of people. Normally that happens with the midfield players -- in Barcelona, with Javier Mascherano, Sergio Busquets, here with David Silva and Fernandinho.

"They are involved in what you are doing and why you are doing it. It's marvellous as a manager to have these kind of players."

Alonso is the second Bayern player to announce he will retire at the end of the season, following defender Philipp Lahm.
