Heynckes: "Barša is the most creative team in the world"

David Saura (enviat especial)

Jupp Heynckes, Bayern Munich Manager, has only praise for Josep Guardiolaĺs team, both for the success of the current European Champions, and for the way they play.

Heynckes: “Barša is the most creative team in the world“

"I know Spanish football, and Barša’s game, pretty well. Everyone knows they’re the current Champions League holders, but we must also remember that they’re the most creative team in the world". With these words of praise, the German coach, who takes over from Van Gaal as manager of Bayern Munich this season, admitted his admiration for Guardiola’s players.

The Masia stamp

At the press conference after the other semi-final of the Audi Cup, Heynckes also referred to the work of the Barša Academy: "They have lots of players who have grown up together at the club, and this means they understood each other really well on the pitch, but also, and very importantly, off the pitch".

Heynckes, who at times expressed himself in very decent Spanish, has extensive experience in the Spanish League, where he managed Athletic Bilbao twice (1992/94 and 2001/03), CD Tenerife (1995/97) and Real Madrid (1997/98), where he won the Champions League.

Players missing from the Final

Despite the absence of important players in the Barša first team, the coach from M÷nchengladbach believes that the Audi Cup Final "will be a very interesting’s true that Barša without Messi is a different team, but players like Iniesta, Xavi, or Busquets are extraordinary players". One of the Bayern doubtfuls is Arjen Robben, who had to come off in the semifinal against AC Milan due to a heavy kick on his leg. Ribery is a non-starter, as he has an ankle injury.
