Guardiola Interested in Bayern Job

Former Bayern Munich and Italy striker Luca Toni has revealed that Pep Guardiola, who is currently on a sabbatical, might be interested in taking the reigns at the Allianz Arena one day. In an interview with Bild am Sonntag, Toni said the former Barcelona coach asked him about the Bavarian giant, and Toni in turn has advised him to take the job if it were available.

"I believe that the club's philosophy would suit him, and he is a very good coach who could be perfect for them,” the 2006 World Cup winner said. “He would add something extra to the German mentality." Toni and Guardiola became close friends after playing together at Brescia in 2003.

Guardiola, who won three successive La Liga titles and two UEFA Champions League trophies in four years as coach of Barcelona, has been linked to a number of top clubs around Europe, and Bayern’s current coach, Jupp Heynckes, is out of contract at the end of the season.

However, president Uli Hoeness insists that after winning eight successive games to open the 2012/2013 domestic season -- a Bundesliga record -- Heynckes may yet continue for another year.
