Joachim Low says Borussia Dortmund will challenge Bayern Munich all the way in the upcoming season, as they have the ability to "annoy" their rivals.

Germany boss Joachim Low believes that next year's Bundesliga title race is by no means a foregone conclusion.

Bayern Munich won the league at a canter last season, finishing 25 points ahead of their nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund, whom they also beat 2-1 in the Champions League final.

With the arrival of Pep Guardiola and Thiago Alacantra, many have tipped Bayern to win a second successive title.

However, Jurgen Klopp's men have also added new faces, with Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining the club, and Low believes they will challenge Bayern.

"Of course, Bayern go into the new season as the favourite, but I always trust that BVB can annoy FCB," Low told Sport 1.

Joachim Low has taken the national side to at least the semi-finals in the three major tournaments since his appointment in 2006.

If Rodgers has a spare £22m, then Shakthar striker Henrikh Mkhitaryan could well be on his wishlist.
