Munich: Treble-winning Bayern Munich unveiled their new coach Pep Guardiola amid a media frenzy on Monday as the Bavarians plan to extend their domination at home and in Europe.

"Forgive my German," Guardiola, dressed in a dapper three-piece grey suit and burgundy tie, told an overflowing news conference at the club's Allianz Arena.

"I have lived in New York for a year and it is not the best place to learn German. What i feel now is a gift, a blessing to be here to be with Bayern and the very thought about me as the coach is a gift," added the Spaniard who has signed a three-year contract.
