Neuer relishing life under Guardiola

The Bayern Munich star says he is eagerly anticipating his first training session with the former Barcelona coach next week

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer says he is looking forward to working under new boss Pep Guardiola.

The former Barcelona coach will take his first training session with the treble-winning side on Wednesday, following the departure of Jupp Heynckes, and Neuer is relishing the prospect of beginning summer preparations under the 42-year-old.

“I think this is another new experience for many of us, to work under a foreign coach,” Neuer was quoted as saying by Bild.

“It is a new start, I’m looking forward to Wednesday. We have previously gone in to the break after negative experiences, [so] this time it was a good feeling to start the holidays with the treble.”

Die Roten sealed an historic silverware clean-sweep on June 1 by beating Stuttgart 3-2 in the DFB Pokal final, having already won the Bundesliga and defeated fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the Champions League final at Wembley.
