New Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti says he feels under not pressure after taking the reins at the Allianz Arena.

Ancelotti was speaking at his first press conference since replacing Pep Guardiola at the German champions.

Despite following in the footsteps of Guardiola, the Italian feels more than comfortable with what lies ahead.

A lot of people ask about the pressure - I am used to it.

I had the luck in my career of coaching top teams - AC Milan, Paris St Germain, Chelsea, Juventus, Real Madrid - all top teams who want to win, but honestly I don't feel the pressure because I'm used to it and I really love my job.

We try to do our best. I know that Bayern have a fantastic history in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League. We try to do our best. We want to be competitive in all competitions.

The only thing that we cannot control is the result - if I could control that too I would be a magician, but I'm only a manager.

– Carlo Ancelotti

Pep Guardiola's final game as coach of Bayern Munich before he heads to Manchester City ended with a trophy as his side completed a domestic double with a penalty shoot-out win over Borussia Dortmund in Germany's Pokal.

After a goalless 120 minutes in which Bayern had arguably the better of the game, but Dortmund the better chances, a shoot-out was required to separate the teams.

Dortmund missed twice and Douglas Costa scored as clinched Bayern the DFB-Pokal to add to their Bundesliga title this season.

With Borussia Dortmund losing 1-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayern head into the final weekend of the season with an eight-point cushion at the top, granting their coach Pep Guardiola a hat-trick of league wins in his reign at the Bavarian club and earning them a record fourth straight title.

Robert Lewandowski put them in front from the penalty spot before the Pole extended his advantage over Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the top of the goalscoring charts with a second.

Moritz Hartmann pulled one back for Ingolstadt from the penalty spot, but Bayern held on for all three points and the 2015-16 Bundesliga title.

Dortmund spent almost the entire second half of their clash at Frankfurt in their hosts' half, but they were unable to reply to Stefan Aigner's goal as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at the Waldstadion.

That result boosts Frankfurt's survival prospects, although they face a final-day showdown with Werder Bremen to avoid a relegation play-off with the side finishing third in the 2. Bundesliga.
