Germany head coach Joachim Low has paid tribute to Pep Guardiola for leading Bayern Munich to their "unbelievable" Bundesliga triumph.
The Bavarians secured the title in record time following their 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin on Tuesday and Low believes Guardiola has taken the side to another level following his appointment as Jupp Heynckes' replacement last summer.
"It's an unbelievable achievement to wrap up the title at such an early stage. Congratulations to all those responsible at the club, to FC Bayern, and above all to coach Pep Guardiola," he was quoted as saying by the club's official website.
"He's brought the team on even further than before, and you can see his influence in terms of dominance and possession. I'm naturally delighted for our national team players at Bayern. The title will give them a real boost.
"We have another major shared target this year. Bayern have every chance of repeating the triumph of last year."
Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff added that Bayern's achievement was an indication of the incredible amount of discipline and hard work at the club.
"Warm congratulations to everyone responsible at Bayern for this masterful achievement. FC Bayern is a leading brand with huge levels of awareness all over the world, and not only because of their footballing achievements," said the former striker.
"I hope Bayern can continue their superb level of performance here and on the European stage. Success never comes automatically, it's the result of disciplined hard work."
