Bayern Munich's Spanish midfield Maestro Thiago had a lot of things to say about the former head coach Pep Guardiola.
Squawka reports that in an interview with Marca, the 26-year-old praised the Guardiola for changing "the concept of German football" and leaving a lasting legacy in the Bundesliga.
Pep bought Thiago from former team Barcelona and spent three years in Bavaria winning consecutive titles with the fellow Spaniard.
“Pep brought greater emphasis on putting value on possession and controlling the game,” Thiago said.
Thiago is currently at the peak of his career at Bayern thanks to Guardiola and the stats show that the Spaniard has improved his passing with a phenomenal 90% passing accuracy average last season.
He continued about Guardiola: "
“He changed the concept of German football in general and they found a harmony that saw them go on to become world champions.”
Under Pep, the Bundesliga giants managed to win three consecutive league titles and two DFB Pokal trophies.
However, his main target with Bayern was to win the Champions League and unfortunately he couldn't surpass Jupp Heynckes' achievement.
Following the three years of success in Germany the Spanish coach set his targets elsewhere, moving to the blue half of Manchester last season.
Almost a year on and Pep has had a taste of Premier League football as Manchester City finished third in the 2016/17 campaign.
He looks to make improvements this summer and has already signed Monaco's Bernardo Silva to get things started for next season.
