Pep Guardiola will depart from Bayern Munich at the end of this season with intentions of switching to the Premier League and Robert Lewandowski is certain the move will be a fruitful one.

Several English clubs are keen to recruit Guardiola's services with Manchester City leading the bids followed by Chelsea and local rivals Manchester United.

And the Polish striker, who has scored 17 goals this season, is confident that Guardiola will bring a wealth of coaching expertise to whatever Premier League club he decides to settle on.

Speaking to the Mail on Sunday, Lewandowski said:

"I know Pep can improve a team in England. I think he knows where he's going and he knows what he needs to do with the team he's going to, so that they play much better. Pep thinks about football 24 hours a day. An obsessive? ‘That’s right. He covers every angle to the smallest detail and he always demands 100 per cent in training and in games."

"He will focus on technique and perhaps more possession than is the norm in England. But Pep knows the Premier League is different from the Spanish league or the Bundesliga. I'm sure he can do something new in terms of tactics and technique.''

Guardiola has harvested an impressive repertoire of success in a coaching capacity.

Since joining the Bundesliga club in 2013, he guided them to successive League titles, the DFB-Pokal, the UEFA Super World Cup and FIFA World Cup.

During his time serving the Barcelona club, the Catalan coached them to two Champions League trophies and three Primera Division titles.
