German football writer, Archie Rhind-Tutt has blamed ex-manager Pep Guardiola’s exit from Bayern Munich for their defeat to Real Madrid on Wednesday.
Bayern were beaten 2-1 by Real Madrid in their Champions League semifinal in Geramny, with Marcelo canceling out Joshua Kimmich’s strike in the first half.
Marco Asensio came on in the second to make it 2-1 for the visitors ahead of the second leg in Spain next week.
Rhind-Tutt believes Bayern are missing the now Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
“I would also ask how well Bayern are playing this season?” he told BBC Radio 5 live.
“They have won the Bundesliga by a country mile but have not really raised their level when they have had to win. I wonder how much of a difference that made tonight?
“The standard has dropped ever since Pep Guardiola left Bayern, in terms of the standards of their performances.
“If you talk to their fans, they would say that they have not seen the same football since he left.
“Bayern would play teams off the park for the entirety of games. They miss him.”
