Pep Guardiola: Bayern Munich boss watched his team beat former club Barcelona

Goals by Philipp Lahm and Mario Mandzukic either side of half-time were enough to give the European Champions another pre-season victory.

Guardiola believes the performance has set Bayern up well ahead of Saturday's German Super Cup clash with Borussia Dortmund, in a repeat of May's Champions League final.

"It was a good preparation for Borussia Dortmund," said Guardiola

"Barcelona are always a good team and they were a good test for us. We had our chances and we have to improve our finishing."

Meanwhile, Guardiola admits it was a treat to face the club he will always be associated with following his glittering success at the Nou Camp.

"It was a very special game for me," Guardiola added. "I spent my whole life as a player and coach of Barcelona.

"I'm very happy now and have nothing to complain about. I have been given a

very good side with Bayern."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
