'Access inside the changing room and behind the scenes that any journalist or writer would kill for - Perarnau's insights are astonishing' - Graham Hunter 'Write about everything you see. Be as critical as you like' - Pep Guardiola to Marti Perarnau, summer 2013 Marti Perarnau was given total access to Bayern Munich during season 2013-14. This book represents the first time in the modern era that a writer has got this close to one of the elite teams of world football. At the invitation of Pep Guardiola, he shadowed the Catalan, his staff and his superstar players during training and on matchdays. Bayern smashed domestic records on their way to the double, but were humiliated by Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final. Perarnau was with them every step of the way. Perarnau is with Guardiola as he is courted by the world's greatest clubs during his sabbatical in New York. We hear Guardiola explain in detail the radical tactical moves which transform Bayern's season and reprogramme the players who will win the World Cup with Germany.Perarnau talks exclusively and in fascinating detail with players such as Arjen Robben, Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm, Thiago Alcantara and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Pep Confidential is much more than the story of a season - it is also a lasting portrait of one of the greatest coaches in sport. Marti Perarnau, former Spanish Olympiad turned journalist, is a renowned football analyst. He writes for a number of Spanish newspapers and runs the hugely popular Perarnau Magazine blog. He lives in Barcelona.Ver Descripción del producto

The book follows events chronologically, from Pep's signing with Bayern to the DFB Pokal final against Dortmund in May 2014. It gives a rather detailed account of how Pep wished to change the team and his general philosophy about football (developing a playing style to suit the players, his desire for his teams to control the game, his hatred of tiki-taka). There is also much discussion about the Bayern players (a lot about Lahm and Højberg), other team staff and the Bayern club management. What the book touches only on the surface are some of the more gossip-worthy topics: Uli Hoeneß and his tax problems, the deterioration in the relationship between Pep and Mandzukic, Kroos' contract talks. It also stops short of pointing out individual players who did not see eye-to-eye with Pep's tactics.
The big surprise for me was the level of tactical detail offered for each game (including the major Champions League games). There is also plenty of material on the introduction of new training methods and some on players' diets as well. The tactics are discussed to the point where an avid fan will be interested, and is not a coaching manual.
One thing to note is that the book portrays a highly positive image of Pep, which some might be put off by, but I find quite accurate based on my own fanatical following of Bayern's progress over the years. It also dispels a lot of the myths circulating in the media (Pep is turning Bayern into Barcelona, Heynckes was forced into retirement, Pep does not like Robben). I'm a Bayern fan, and a Pep fan now only by association (though I always respected him), but my own opinion of the man has certainly grown after reading this book.
To sum up, this book is a fascinating read. Bayern and Pep fans will certainly enjoy it, and there is plenty of material for any avid football fan.
As a Bayern fan I liked the insights into and the dynamics of the Bayern's management - how the club is run, how key decisions are made and who actually hold the real power. These insights are often very surprising and we learn in particular Rummeniege, Sammer and Hoeness provide Pep with very strong support and stand by him during good and bad times. We also learn a lot about the players and their personalities.
The book focuses a lot on Pep as a person and his coaching principles and ideas. We also learn his non sporting side as we as his family and close friends. I found it rather fascinating that Pep has some very interesting friends such as top professors, world chess champions, etc. He comes across as someone complex, passionate and utterly devoted to football.
The book also reveals quite of lot of the thinking, planning and also post match tactical analyses of many Bundesliga matches as well as the Champions' League games. Here we learn much about Pep's thinking and his playing and coaching principles.
However on the flip side, the book side steps some key issues and incidents. It is no secret that Pep has some major disagreements with some key players. While we like to know about Pep and his philosophy, there were too many pages devoted to the "genius" of Pep and at times the author sound like some teenager with a serious crush on his idol.
While the author generally knowledgeable about football, his tends to just report whatever Pep was saying, rather than try to explain what these mean to the general reader using diagrams to explain the tactics. As a result, a general reader without much exposure to football tactics will be lost in the tactics discussion.
Lastly, I noticed numerous grammatical and spelling errors.
It is reveled that his secret to success if not that unusual. He works himself, his coaches and players to death. There seems to be no secret as to why he left Barcelona and spent some time away from the game. He had to be exhausted.
The book covers his life away from soccer and his involvement off the field seems as intense as that on the pitch. He would be as well-rounded off the field as one could be in light of the pressure environments he has found himself in.
Having been involved in viewing Champions League play while reading the book, Pep' 2015 Bayern Munich team obviously couldn't overcome a series of both injuries and not having a Messi on its roster.
Finally while the author tries to describe Guardiola's tactical plans, he failed to recognize that pictures/diagrams are worth more than words. Diagramming each formation and where players were located in them would have aided greatly. Having coached the sport for over 30 years, I could understand the descriptive language used in revealing Pep's tactical plans. But I am not certain all readers did.
