Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm praises Pep Guardiola, who will take over as head coach of the club next season.

Philipp Lahm has praised Pep Guardiola after Bayern Munich appointed the Spaniard to take over as manager at the end of the season.

The former Barcelona boss will replace Jupp Heynckes at the Allianz Arena when he retires at the end of the campaign.

"Pep Guardiola has been the best coach of the last four or five years. All over the club, and in the dressing room too, you sense huge anticipation," Lahm told the club's official website.

"It's a top transfer, a best-in-class solution. Respect for what our bosses have done. You're never guaranteed to bring in a really successful coach like this.

"It shows the club's good image, the quality in the team, and what our current coach has achieved. He has shaped a team who are contenders in all competitions."

Bayern are currently nine points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.
