Kroos enjoying Pep talks

7 July 2013 21:23

Pep Guardiola is working hard to pass on his footballing "vision" to the Bayern Munich squad ahead of his first season in charge.

Midfielder Toni Kroos has revealed what life is like under the former Barcelona manager, who has been given the task of defending the UEFA Champions League and Bundesliga titles won by Jupp Heynckes last term.

Kroos is revelling in the chance to work with Guardiola and admits the 42-year-old is very vocal to the players he has inherited from Heynckes.

"Yes, training with Guardiola is good," said Kroos, who scored six goals in 24 Bundesliga appearances last season.

"He's always talking to each player, trying to give them a vision of the style of football he wants to play.

"I think that with him, every player will have a different task and will have to adapt their game to what he wants.

"He just has his own style - his own plan.

"He wants to communicate that to each player individually.

"For some positions, that works better in a one-on-one situation. It's better to do that than talk in front of the whole team."

Guardiola is back in football at Bayern following a spell out of the game after a four-year spell in charge at Barcelona, where he won La Liga three times and the Champions League twice.
