thumbnail Hello,

The Switzerland boss feels that the Bavarians can do without the striker as they already have plenty of options up front, and stated that he would welcome Pep Guardiola at the club

Ottmar Hitzfeld has voiced his opinion that the signing of Edin Dzeko from Manchester City is not a must for Bayern Munich as the club already has enough attackers.

A number of recent reports suggested that the Bavarian side is keen to add the former Wolfsburg star to its squad this summer, but 'The General' feels the club doesn't need the striker at this point.

"Dzeko? I think Bayern already have enough strikers with the arrival of [Claudio] Pizarro, and with [Nils] Petersen staying put. It's not necessary to sign another top striker," Hitzfeld stated to TZ. "That is unless the trainer decided to switch to a formation with two forwards. However, Bayern already have Gomez in their current 4-2-3-1 formation, with Pizarro as backup. Another high-profile forward wouldn't even get to play."

The Switzerland boss then went on to discuss the possible arrival of Pep Guardiola as Bayern's new coach in 2013.

"If you can sign him and he'd feel comfortable to train the team in their own language, it would be a good thing."

Guardiola left Barcelona this summer as he wants to take a one-year sabbatical, but is expected to return to coaching in 2013.
