Pep Guardiola was in tears after he managed his final game in charge of Bayern Munich on Saturday night.

The Spaniard saw his side beat Borussia Dortmund on penalties to win the German Cup, after a goalless final in berlin.

The result earned him his seventh trophy with the Bavarians as he prepares to join Manchester City.

In his three years in charge of Die Roten, he has won three Bundesliga titles, two German Cups

He signs off from the Bundesliga champions having won the title in each of his three season in Munich, also collecting two German Cups.

Speaking after the game, he said the titles did not mean as much to him as the relationship he had built with Bayern’s players.

“Titles are just numbers,” he said. “In terms of titles, then yes it’s been good. It’s been a great experience to work with this club every day, but above all with these players.

“I’ll miss them. I worked every day with them – 24 hours a day with these players. I was always thinking how to make them better and better and yes, I will miss them.

“I know this cup makes the Bayern fans happy, but tomorrow and then the day after tomorrow, it’s back to normal again and Bayern have to go on winning.

“I wish Bayern the best for the future. I’m delighted to finish in this way. Who knows if I will come back (to coach in Germany),” the Catalan, who was in tears added.

Former Real Madrid and PSG manager, Carlo Ancelotti will take over from Guardiola at Bayern from next season.

The game was also the final appearance for Borussia Dortmund’s captain Mats Hummels, who will be moving to the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.
