`I`m not some super-trainer` - Guardiola plays down Bayern expectations

Munich: Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has attempted to dampen expectations ahead of his first season at the club.

The German side won the Champions League, Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal last season, losing just three games in all competitions under the guidance of Jupp Heynckes.

Guardiola himself enjoyed remarkable success in his four-year stint at the helm of Barcelona, but he insists he should not be considered a "super-trainer" as he attempts to continue his impressive coaching career at the Allianz Arena.

"It’s not easy always having to win. People believe we’ll win 6-0 or 7-0, but that’s just not possible. The supporters want more and more and more, but I have only been with the team for six to seven weeks, I need more time. I’m just a normal coach, I’m not some super-trainer," he told reporters.

Bayern suffered a 4-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the DFL-Supercup in Guardiola`s first competitive fixture in charge.

The Bavarian club will get their Bundesliga campaign under way against Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday.
