Pep Guardiola admits nervouseness as he is unveiled as new Bayern Munich boss

Bayern Munich have officially unveiled Pep Guardiola as their new head coach, with the Spaniard admitting he feels the pressure to succeed Heynckes, who led his side to a historic treble.

Pep Guardiola revealed he is ‘a bit nervous’ to take charge of Bayern Munich, after his predecessor Jupp Heynckes left Allianz Arena on a high, securing the UEFA Champions League, German Cup and the Bundesliga title.

Guardiola said he faces a huge challenge and will do his utmost to pass the test of his coaching abilities with the flying colors. He said: “As a manager of Bayern you know what is expected of you: you always have to play well and you are obliged to win.

“I am a bit nervous. Give me time. Step by step. In a great club, as manager you always have great pressure. I have it here, I’m conscious of it and I accept this huge challenge.
“I take the reins of a team that last year did extraordinary things. I have to continue the high level of Jupp Heynckes. I have huge respect for his work. There are a few things I would change, but very few.”
