Pep Guardiola likes to run a tight ship at Bayern Munich, rarely granting media access to pre-match training sessions. However, the club’s official YouTube channel does offer a glimpse into some of the more lighthearted drills Guardiola has to offer.
And boy, do they look strange. Introducing… “bucket ball”
There’s a lot going on here. The gist of the drill looks pretty clear, but what’s going on with guys holding hands and dancing in circles like they’re at the Oktoberfest?
Guardiola had his players do this drill the week of their match at Hamburg, which ended in a goalless draw - Bayern’s worst result of the season.
So yeah, we don’t believe “bucket ball” has worked its way into Bayern’s regular training regimen.
