Speaking in his new book which has recently had parts published in Bild, Dr Muller-Wohlfahrt ripped into the former Bayern Head Coach Pepe Guardiola stating that the Spaniard is not a forward thinking manager people think he is.

The German doctor was blamed by Guardiola for the teams failure after they was knocked out of the Champions League by Porto, which resulted in the long-serving club Doctor walking out on the club. However, after Guardiola left the club the German has returned as the club doctor once again.

Muller-Wohlfahrt wrote in his book: “Under Pep Guardiola, the climate changed at Bayern Munich, and it became more clear that he did not trust me and my team. On the one hand, he was totally uninterested in medical issues, but on the other hand, he demanded that we perform miracles.

“Guardiola was often portrayed in the media as on innovative, if not revolutionary coach. But at Bayern Munich he turned the clock back tremendously. He even went so far as to turn our medically thought-out, well-rehearsed preparation program on its head before the actual football training.

“I simply could not reach Pep Guardiola with the way I think and work. Even my reports of injured players did not interest him. Whenever I wanted to talk to him, he immediately turned away and walked away.

“I think Pep Guardiola is a person of low self-esteem, who does everything in his power to mislead others. He therefore seems to live in constant fear, not so much in defeat, but much more in the loss of power and authority.”

Man City, who are through to the last-eight of the Champions could come up against Bayern in the quarter-finals. Bayern are expected to make it through after winning the first leg to Turkish champions Besiktas 5-0.
