Louis Van Gaal believes Pep Guardiola will succeed at Bayern Munich because he shares his philosophy.. Not very modest but he does have a point. What do you think?

"Guardiola's appointment was not a surprise for me as Bayern always go for the best coaches out there. And Pep follows the Van Gaal-philosophy. I think it's a fantastic choice," the Netherlands boss told NOS.

"I'm the one who first employed the formation Bayern Munich are using these days during my time at the club. [Jupp] Heynckes then continued on the same path and Pep is the right man to succeed him. Pep thinks just like Jupp and I.

"Guardiola is a really intelligent guy. He might struggle a bit with the German language, but they all understand English as well."

Roberto Martinez is adamant that Wigan will not sell James McCarthy who has been linked with Arsenal.

"No. As you know, at this moment the last thing we want is to lose players. We are not going to lose players. We are not a football club that have got big amounts of money to spend but what we haven't got is debts.

We made a profit of £4 million this year and that means that we can re-invest and we can look internally to try to be as strong as we can be. We are not going to lose any players, if anything we are going to add some.”
