Porto shocked the world when they emphatically defeated Bayern Munich 3-1 in their first leg Champions League quarterfinal encounter yesterday.

The Portuguese side pressed and harrowed the Bavarians with each of their goals coming from individual Bayern mistakes.

Pep Guardiola’s side were without the likes of Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Javi Martinez, David Alaba and Mehdi Benatia but were still expected to come away from the Estádio do Dragão with a win.

And following the game, the medical staff have been pinned the blame for Bayern’s 3-1 loss. Hans Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt – at Bayern since 1977 – and his entire medical team have since resigned with immediate effect.

With reports that Guardiola specifically blamed Müller-Wohlfahrt, it has certainly taken a hit on the Spaniard’s reputation.

Just days before the Porto loss, Guardiola was seen sarcastically applauding his bench against Bayer Leverkusen in what seems to be towards either his assistant manager or Müller-Wohlfahrt himself.

Bayern have not commented on the medical team’s resignation but there have also been conflicting reports.

It looks like we’ll have to wait a bit to get the full scoop on what exactly is going on with Die Roten.
