Low: Pep Can Handle Pressure

Germany coach Joachim Low has little doubt Pep Guardiola can handle the weight of expectation at Bayern Munich this season.

Guardiola, who coached Barcelona to a record 14 titles between 2008 and 2012, has taken charge of the Bundesliga champions and Champions League holders after a year out of football.

And although his tenure got off to a rocky start with a 4-2 loss to Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup last month, Low backs the Spaniard to impress in Bavaria.

"He has clear ideas, a clear playing philosophy and he will bring that to Bayern," Low said of Guardiola in Bild am Sonntag.

"Guardiola will cope with the pressure. He was the coach of Barcelona and expectations do not get any higher than at that club."

The 53-year-old added that Dortumund are the most likely team to challenge Bayern's dominance in the upcoming campaign.

"BVB are the only club strong enough to defy Bayern," Low said.
