Pep Guardiola and his team of Champions celebrate BEER FESTIVAL(Oktoberfest) in Munich


Pep Guardiola is thriving on and off the pitch at Bayern Munich, merging his and their winning ways and embracing the local Barvarian culture.
The former Barcelona boss led his team on a family day out at Octoberfest as the annual German festival marked its last official day of celebrations for the year. 
Traditional lederhosen, hats and pints the size of their head were the order of the day in Munich.

Bayern couldn't have had a much smoother start to Guardiola's first season, currently sitting atop the Bundesliga ladder, one point ahead of Borussia Dortmund, and two wins from two matches so far in the group stages of the Champions League as they look to defend their title.
Add to that victory over Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup and you have a happy team indeed. 
Wives, girlfriends and kids were all welcome as they gathered for the 180th Oktoberfest celebrations at Kaefers Wiesenschaenke.

As Europe enters an international break, Bayern's next match won't be until October 19 when they host FSV Mainz in the Bundesliga.
Although few Bayern players will be getting a rest during the period, with no less than 15 players called up for international duties, including seven for the German national team. 
Arjen Robben believes despite his side's top form, the break comes at a good time for Bayern. 
'It will do the Bayern players a world of good to be away from the club for a few days and breathe some fresh air and be surrounded by other people for a change,' he said.

This is of course not the first time Guardiola has  donned lederhosen in his time at Bayern - the new manager looked perfectly at home in the shorts and braces when he posed for the traditional team photo at the start of the season. 
The European champions are also partial to a brew, having tipped beer over each other as they celebrated their 23rd Bundesliga title last year at Allianz Arena.
Last month, the Munich side wore a lederhosen-inspired strip to mark Oktoberfest.
