German great Michael Ballack believes that Pep Guardiola is the right man to improve a Bayern Munich side that is already on top.
The former Barcelona coach will take over at the Allianz Arena next season, with the Bavarians having dominated Bundesliga this term while they stormed into the Champions League final with an 8-0 win over Guardiola's previous employers.
Ballack, who turned out for Bayern and Chelsea, believes that Guardiola is the perfect choice to replace the outgoing Jupp Heynckes.
"If you see the statistics this year Bayern Munich played an unbelievable season, scoring most goals, conceding less and look at the way they played also - they have been so dominating and balanced from attacking football to counterattack to possession," he told Goal.
"It is difficult to improve a team that is at such a level but then if somebody can do it then maybe it is Guardiola.
"Before he went on his break he proved he was one of the best coaches in the world coaching one of the best teams in the world - Barcelona. They were dominant for a few years so he knows how to improve a team who is already on top."
Regarding the Champions League final between Bayern and Borussia Dortmund, he added, "Bayern have the advantage. They have adapted well to everything Borussia Dortmund have tried this season.
"The injury of Mario Gotze can be critical too. Not playing with your biggest talent behind the striker Robert Lewandowski in that key position is a big loss."
