BERLIN Nike Presto Shoes Sale , Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- One could call Pep Guardiola a football-translator with a secret dream. Now that the Champions League group draw is taking place this Thursday, it is time for the Iberian's dream to surface once again.

The ambitious coach wants to translate the so successful "Barcelona language" into one that is compatible with Bayern Munich. He wants his team to take total control in midfield with the famous "tiki-taka" and pair it with greater tactical flexibility and efficiency.

Since taking over at Bayern last summer, winning the most important title in club football with Munich is something of great personal importance to the Spaniard. It is his mission.

Since the disastrous defeat to Real Madrid in last year's semi-final (0-10-4), Guardiola has concentrated, like someone managing a crisis Nike Air Presto Sale , on finding a solution and has therefore introduced some fundamental changes in Munich's game.

The goal is to avoid a similar nightmare when Real's quick strikers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale ran Munich ragged. Guardiola's slightly more offensive strategy (striker Mueller instead of defender Rafinha) and their weak finishing opened the floodgates to Real on that fateful night in Munich.

In the German Cup fFinal against Borussia Dortmund, Guardiola surprised everybody with a three-man back row and two defenders down the flanks, which would change into a row of five in order to stop fast counter attacks like the ones with which Real destroyed his team in spring 2014.

On the attack, the system can be changed into a 3-4-3 system and keeper Manuel Neuer then acts as a "defensive midfielder". Guardiola's main concern is to gain total control in midfield. He wants an unpredictable team capable of playing different systems and to change them during matches. 4-2-2-1-1, 3-4-2-1 Nike Presto Sale , 3-3-3-1 or 3-4-1-2 - his dream is for his team to fly under the opponent's radar.

Due to Bayern's long injury list, which includes many key players like Ribery, Martinez, Schweinsteiger, Thiago Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low Black Sale , and with Toni Kroos joining Real after the World Cup, Guardiola currently has a serious problem: He can't try out his new ideas in time for Champions League start Sept. 1617 because he has no players and is forced to change his line-up depending on who is available and use a back-row of four.

"In midfield you gain control either through the quality of your players orand through their number," Guardiola has said.

In order to get his ideas to work, Guradiola has installed a new striker up front. Robert Lewandowski has replaced Mario Mandzukic. The former Dortmund striker is able to participate in a playing team more than Mandzukic did. Guardiola wants a straight line of "game managing" players from Neuer to Martinez, Lahm Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low White Sale , Schweinsteiger and Lewandowski.

Germany's World Cup success may have encouraged Guardiola to think about making further changes as Bayern didn't do well with dead-ball-situations like freekicks or corners, or to be highly flexible tactically.

The changes do not mean that Guardiola will give up his dominant keep-ball style, but he will tweak it.

Against Real, Bayern's attacks were often broken down because of impatience, meaning Bayern wasn't prepared for the fact that defenders could stop their assumed deadly strikers as their attacks were not prepared well.

Bayern's bosses maybe right when they say Guardiola is living football all around the clock. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge once said he would not be surprised if Guardiola called him in the middle of the night to discuss tactics.

The Spaniard travelled around Brazil during the 2014 World Cup and he often texted his Bayern players encouraging them to stay confident. He offered them some advice in all his messages as he didn't want them to return to Munich after the tournament frustrated which would make it far more difficult for him to motivate them for daily life in the German league.

Ahead of matches Men's Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low Grey Sale , Guardiola can't eat, and he basically only drinks water due to a nervous stomach. It's not unusual for him to change his mind about tactics in an instant. Having a strategy in mind, a three-man back row for example, he might decide to alter it to a four-man defence depending on his gut instinct.

"I dream of the perfect game," he says. "I want people to enjoy our football."

In order to fulfil his (and fans) dreams he might now need new players.
