Thiago relishes Guardiola link-up - Bundesliga news

New Bayern Munich signing Thiago Alcantara says that Pep Guardiola was a major factor in his decision to leave Barcelona to head to Germany.
The 22-year-midfielder is eager to make a big impact with the reigning European champions and believes that he will flourish under his former Barca head coach Guardiola.
"We've known each other for a long time and he (Guardiola) is a coach who has placed great faith in me. I'm a huge fan of the way he likes football to be played.

"There aren't many coaches in the world with his ability. He was definitely one of the important reasons for me making the move to Munich."

Thiago has already enjoyed a successful summer by helping the Spain Under-21 side win the European Championships, with the former Barca man netting a hat-trick in the 4-2 final win over Italy.

While Thiago arrives at Bayern, striker Mario Gomez has left the club to join Italian outfit Fiorentina.

Bayern are 1.16 to retain their Bundesliga title in 2013/14, while they are 4.50 to successfully defend their Champions League crown.
