Berlin:

Champions League winners Bayern Munich are catering for up to 25,000 fans to watch Pep Guardiola's first two training sessions next week as the hype around the arrival of the ex-Barcelona coach builds.

Guardiola, 42, will give his first press conference as Bayern's head coach next Monday, then oversees his first two training sessions the following Wednesday and Thursday, with both to be held at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern have taken the unusual step of switching from their Saebener Strasse training complex to allow for up to 25,000 fans to watch the two evening sessions which start at 5pm local time (1500 GMT).

Bayern are charging adults five euros, with proceeds going to the victims of the recent flooding which affected south Germany, while children under 14 can watch for free.
