    Thousands expected for Pep Guardiola's debut at Bayern

    Berlin: Bayern Munich are expecting to attract around 25,000 fans to watch their newly-appointed coach Pep Guardiola's first two training sessions at the club.

    Bayern, who completed the treble in 2012-13 by winning the Champions League, Budesliga title and German Cup, switched from their usual Saebener Strasse training complex to Allianz Arena to allow more fans to watch the former Barcelona coach in action for the first time.

    Guardiola is believed to address media as Bayern's head coach next Monday, before overseeing his first two training sessions the following Wednesday and Thursday.

    The club is charging adults five euros, while children under 14 can watch for free.

    Guardiola, who won 14 titles in four years at Barcelona, signed a three-year contract with Bayern recently, taking over from Jupp Heynckes.
