Heynckes: I would never ask Guardiola for help

Jupp Heynckes has reacted angrily to suggestions he could consult Pep Guardiola about Bayern Munich’s Champions League semi-final with Barcelona.

The former Barca boss will take over the reins at the Allianz Arena in the summer.

But 68-year-old Heynckes has claimed that anyone who believes he would give his successor a call of being disrespectful.

“Please respect me and my work,” he said on Friday.

“I have never consulted anyone!”

Looking ahead to the tie, Heynckes said that he is expecting two great games against a team whom he knows well.

“We’ll see two very entertaining games. Both teams like to attack and have a solid defence with good tactical awareness,” he added.

“I said before the Juventus game that I don’t think playing the first leg at home is a disadvantage. Camp Nou is certainly a special stadium and we can expect a fantastic atmosphere there.

“I know Spain football very well because I’ve always been interested in it, even after I left Spain.

“Barcelona aren’t just (Lionel) Messi. They have great players like Xavi, (Andres) Iniesta, (Sergio) Busquets, (Cesc) Fabregas and (David)Villa.”
