Under Pep's reign in 2015 Muller Wohlfahrt ended 38 years of service as Bayern's team doctor

The veteran medic, 75, quit after 38 years as Bayern's club doctor in 2015 following clashes with Guardiola.

Bayern Munich and Germany doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt has launched a scathing attack on Pep Guardiola in a recently published autobiography.

The Catalan boss has led Manchester City to the brink of the Premier League title this season, as well as winning the Carabao Cup and reaching the Champions League last eight.

Guardiola, however, appears to have a tight bond with his backroom staff at Manchester City, which is perhaps a conscious result of the struggles he had with Muller-Wohlfahrt at Bayern. The former Barcelona manager left the Bundesliga outfit and moved to England in 2016. 'On the one hand, he showed no interest in medical questions, and on the other hand, he demanded miracles from us'.

"I thought I was coming to the best medical department in the world, and we have two long-term injuries that should have been good after the initial diagnosis".

"Guardiola was often portrayed in the media as an innovative, if not revolutionary, coach".

Bayern overturned the deficit in the second leg before falling short against Barcelona in the semi-finals, while Muller-Wohlfahrt is now back working with the club in a different capacity.

The German also accused Guardiola of "turning upside down our well thought out, tried and trusted medical preparation programme".

"I remember one season under Jupp Heynckes, in which there were only three muscle injuries", Muller Wohlfahrt wrote, according to the Telegraph, in a book being serialised by German news outlet Bild.

"And I do not rely on my memory or my gut feeling, but on the official statistics of the Uefa Elite Club Injury Study, in which Bayern was always among the clubs with the fewest injuries".

PEP GUARDIOLA has come in for a blistering attack from the most famous doctor in football.

'In his first season, we had many more muscular injuries than before. And he knew everything better: Five minutes warm-up in a rush, that had to be enough. But that could not be good.

"I think I would have been able to moderate the conflict between Mull and Pep Guardiola", Hoeness said. Whenever I wanted to talk to him, he immediately turned away and walked away.

Pep Guardiola has been subjected to a scathing personal attack by Bayern Munich's first-team doctor, who has described the Spaniard as "person with a low self-esteem who will do everything to hide it from others". Not so much of defeats but of the loss of power and authority.
