Low: Guardiola has pepped up Bayern

Germany boss Joachim Low has backed Bayern Munich to follow up their startling Bundesliga triumph by ruling Europe again in the Champions League and paving the way for a World Cup triumph.

To win the title at such an early stage is an unbelievable achievement by Bayern.

Congratulations to Bayern, and above all to coach Pep Guardiola. He has improved the team even further, and you can see his mark on their dominance and ball possession.

I'm naturally happy for our national team players at Bayern - the title should give them a further boost. We have another greater goal together this year. Bayern have every chance of repeating their success of last season.

– Germany boss Joachim Low

Although Adrian Ramos pulled a goal back from the penalty spot midway through the second half, Franck RIbery's 79th minute goal wrapped up the win in style and gave them the crown with seven games to spare.
