Bayern Boss Hails Pep

Bayern Munich chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has praised Pep Guardiola’s first season in Germany.

The Spaniard finished the season with the domestic double, which was overshadowed with the embarrassing 5-0 thrashing by Real Madrid in the Champions League.

"He's shown the same level of quality as he did at Barcelona," Rummenigge told the club's official website.

"Pep is a wonderful coach with a clear philosophy, a clear plan. We're really happy with him. We have to thank the dear Lord he sent Pep Guardiola to us in Munich.

"After winning the treble you might tend to think you don't need to change anything and all changes are wrong. But Pep has changed quite a few things. And all the changes he made were right.

"He got rid of the two defensive midfielders, he put Philipp Lahm in the holding role, the team played higher up the pitch and they pressed more than in the previous season...he set the team new challenges.

"Players like Philipp Lahm, Arjen Robben and Manuel Neuer have repeatedly told me how much the squad enjoy the new regime. We've also played a different quality of football in this campaign."

Rummenigge hailed Guardiola’s decision to switch Philipp Lahm from right-back to midfield and revealed the Champions League has annoyed the ambitious coach.

"It was a brilliant decision. We had arguably the best right-back in the world - and moving him into defensive midfield improved the quality of the team,” he added.

"I think the only thing that annoys him is not winning the Champions League. He's incredibly ambitious."
