Benatia: Bayern move a dream

Medhi Benatia has described joining Bayern Munich as a dream come true and emphasised his excitement at working under coach Pep Guardiola.

I'm delighted that my transfer to Bayern has finally come off. It dragged out a bit and there were times when I thought it might fall through. But Guardiola desperately wanted me and I'm really looking forward to working with him.

He's a fantastic trainer.

Bayern have so many great players. They have such a strong squad and it's a dream to be part of it.
