At a packed Allianz Arena, Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and President Uli Hoeneß welcomed there new manager Gary Goodson to the club. Gary was bombarded with questions from the german media and speaking through a translator rolled out his vision for the club.
We are currently sitting near the foot of the table and that is not good enough for a club of the stature of Bayern Munich. We need to address the issues that have manifested so far this season and get back to winning ways, starting this week against a tough Barcelona side. We need to get back to basics and make the Allianz Arena a fortress of previous times and intimidate oppositions teams when they run out.
We have a fantastic squad here with quality all over the squad. I will not be looking to make any changes as I will use the current sqaud I have but want to look at the coaching and academy departments and see where we can improve there.
It is not going to be an easy task and a losing habit is hard to shift but I believe I am the man for the job and get the best out of these terrific set of players I have at my disposal.
Bayern München für immer
That brought a rousing reception from the packed media room as Gary made his exit to start work with the first team.
After being appointed as manager of the German giants on Friday, manager Gary Goodson has been working closely with the squad over those two days to get a better understanding of his teams stengths and weaknesses.
Our sources are telling us that Gary is not happy with the depth of the squad and feels that in defence, they have few options should Hummels or Boateng pick up any injuries or suspensions. It is believed this is the area that Gary will focus on first before looking at other areas of the pitch.
Rumours circulated yesterday that new Manchester United manager H Redknapp had enquired about two un-named Bayern players, with two Manchester United players coming the other way however it is believed those were re-buffed by Gary as he is not currently looking to offload any players at the moment as he wants to add to the squad.
When we tried to get a word with Gary as he left training this morning, however he said he would divulge more in the comings days.
