Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has expressed his satisfaction after an ideal start as Bavarians' coach as his side hammered Hamburg 4-0 in the Telekom Cup, a pre-season tournament in Monchengladbach, which was also the club's first real test under the Spaniard.
New Bayern midfielder Thiago Alcantara shone on his debut less than a week after arriving in Germany, while Jerome Boateng, Mario Mandzukic, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller scored the champions' goals.
"We're happy," Guardiola told Sat. 1 television.
"We're in the final and our defenders pushed forwards well."
Meanwhile, while Dortmund fell to a late penalty against the hosts Borussia Monchengladbach.
