    Treble winners Bayern Munich unveil coach Pep Guardiola

    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.

    Guardiola, who won 14 trophies in four years at Barcelona, is Bayern's biggest signing for the coming season as they eye more silverware.

    He has, however, a tough act to follow with his predecessor Jupp Heynckes leading Bayern to a domestic league and Cup double and the Champions League title in an unprecedented season for a German club.
