Pep Guardiola set for quick Bayern Munich return

Pep Guardiola will return to Munich with Manchester City for a friendly on July 20, the first match at home for Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Guardiola led Bayern to three straight Bundesliga titles in his three seasons in Munich before moving on to Manchester City.

The Bayern squad starts preparing for the new season under Ancelotti on July 11, but without Bayern players who are at the European Championship in France.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says ”we are looking forward to welcoming Pep Guardiola and his new team so soon in Munich again.”
