Bayern Munich’s coach Pep Guardiola Joins Politics To Save Catalan
Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is to stand for office in the parliamentary elections to be

The former Barcelona boss is a staunch supporter of independence for the region in which he grew up and believes lending his name to the campaign of pro-secession party Convergencia i Esquerra will boost hopes of separatism from Spain.
Guardiola has no intention of becoming a Member of Parliament, reports in Catalunya claim, but is keen to add weight to the fight
