Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has hailed Pep Guardiola as possibly the greatest coach in the club’s illustrious history. Over the weekend, Guardiola, who only took the reigns at the German Treble winner this summer, became the first coach in Bayern history to go undefeated in his first 11 Bundesliga games. That milestone was reached after Bayern came from behind to beat Hoffenheim 2-1 at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. It was also the German champion’s 36th consecutive league game without defeat, equaling a 30-year-old record previously held by Hamburg.

Guardiola’s strong start means Rummenigge is happy to leave the former Barcelona coach in full control. "The concept is good. We play really well," Rummenigge told the media ahead of the club’s UEFA Champions League match away to Viktoria Plzen. "Maybe Pep Guardiola is the best and most of all most popular coach in the history of FC Bayern and the world. He is the biggest expert you could sign. The coach has supremacy over training, tactic and the line-up. I will not give any advice."

Bayern is currently top of UCL Group D with three wins after three games, having conceded only one goal, three points ahead of second-place Manchester City. A win at Plzen would equal Barcelona’s UCL record of nine straight victories in the competition. Read the original story...
