On 16 January , it was announced that Guardiola would take over as manager of Bundesliga club Bayern Munich after the —13 season , replacing Jupp Heynckes for the following season.

After the international break and a home draw on 23 October , Guardiola tied his record of going five games without a win.

The second leg of the tie was his th game as a manager in European competition, and he arrived at that mark with the best record of any manager, 61 wins and 23 draws. This was one draw better than the previous record holder, his former manager at Barcelona, Louis van Gaal.
Guardiola finished the season with no trophies — the only time he has finished a season without a trophy. He stated mid-season that the coaching role at City "might be his last team" as manager and stated not winning a trophy, of the four available to City, constituted a "failure". Guardiola identified the defensive areas which required improvement for City to challenge for the league title, particularly in the goalkeeper and full back position.
He made three major acquisitions in the summer transfer window in goalkeeper Ederson Moraes and wing-backs of Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker , while dispensing of all the current senior full backs at the club in Aleksandar Kolarov , Gael Clichy , Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta. The game ended 0—0 after extra-time, but Manchester City won 4—3 on penalties retaining the trophy for the second year in a row.
The game ended in a 1—0 defeat. However, due to the Aggregate Score being a 4—4 tie, Tottenham went through to the semi-finals on away goals. Under Guardiola's predecessor Frank Rijkaard , Barcelona were known for a 4—3—3 with plenty of flair with Ronaldinho being the centre point of the attack. Under Guardiola, however, the team became more disciplined with a greater focus on possession and a disciplined and aggressive pressing style. Johan Cruyff previously had used this system as a basic tactical approach when Guardiola played for Barcelona.
Guardiola employed this system in a 5—0 win against Villarreal with Javier Mascherano, Sergio Busquets and Eric Abidal as the back-three and Seydou Keita acting as a defensive midfield. Of note is that throughout their careers, Mascherano, Keita and Busquets had been deployed primarily as midfielders and Abidal as a full back, meaning Guardiola did not play even one central defender in the 5—0 victory. Although much emphasis is placed on retaining possession of the ball and dictating play, Guardiola's teams are recognised for pressing off the ball.
Players press and harry the opposition collectively in an attempt to win back possession of the ball. At Barcelona, this was referred as the "six-second rule", in that the team should aim to win back possession of the ball within six seconds as this was the time when opposition players may still be out of position following turnover of possession and most susceptible to being dispossessed or forced into a mistake.
However, the principle of swiftly winning the ball back following a turnover of possession remains at Bayern Munich and Manchester City. As high pressing has become a greater part of football, Guardiola evolved the idea of countering an opponent's pressing by ensuring his goalkeeper and defenders are comfortable on the ball and capable of retaining possession to counteract. At Manchester City, he evolved this idea one step further by utilising the fact players cannot be offside from a goal kick and ensured a goalkeeper with the necessary kicking force to kick the length of the pitch in signing Ederson.
If opponents pressed City high in their back third from a goal kick, it was not uncommon that Manchester City strikers would run deep into the opponent's back third. He has two older sisters and a younger brother, Pere, a football agent. He spent the majority of his career with Barcelona, forming a part of Johan Cruyff's Dream Team that won the club's first European Cup in , and four successive Spanish league titles from to He was capped 47 times for.

Guardiola during a press conference in Definitely, we are not safe until the referee says 'Okay, go home. It's so much rubbish and has no purpose. You have to pass the ball with a clear intention, with the aim of making it into the opposition's goal. It's not about passing for the sake of it. Don't believe what people say. It's completely made up! Don't believe a word of it! In all team sports, the secret is to overload one side of the pitch so that the opponent must tilt its own defence to cope.
