I don’t need Guardiola’s advice – Heynckes

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes said he will not ask former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola for advice ahead of their Champions League semi-final with the Spanish giants.

Guardiola will take over from Heynckes at the German champions next season, having led Barcelona to 14 trophies in four seasons before taking time out and signing for Bayern earlier this year.

“Respect me and my work,” Heynckes curtly told reporters on Friday. “I have never consulted anyone or asked for advice.

“I do not need anyone to study an opponent.”



“Guardiola has not made contact yet,” said the club’s chief executive officer Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“He may have insider knowledge but we also have an insider on our bench. No German knows Spanish football better than Heynckes.”
