You can’t make a Sepp out of Pep

By  Monday, 1.2.2016, 19:40    Bayern Munich

Today it has been officially confirmed that current FC Bayern Munich coach Josep “Pep” Guardiola will become manager of Manchester City following the on-going season. Even though the Catalan coach and the FC Bayern had announced his departure about a month ago, with the announcement that Guardiola is moving to Manchester, he began trending on Twitter and other German social media.

Most of the users comment on the advance planning of Guardiola’s Career and predict that he’ll be coaching Borussia Dortmund as of 2019. Below are some of the comments on Twitter:


“#Guardiola is choosing the hard way again – take a no-name team and lead it to success. Next time perhaps Hansa Rostock?”

Pavan Chelluri:

“Welcome to hell #guardiola. Let’s see if u can handle the heat called #EPL”

Manchester City fan, ex Oasis and current Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher:

“Sgt Pep and the blue moonies LG X”

Our favourite comment comes from Mario Siegesmund and it’a a little wordplay:

“Conclusion for #Bayern: you can’t turn a Pep into a Sepp” (Pep is short for the Catalan Josep, while Sepp is the Bavarian short for Josef).
