Guardiola's Bayern up and running in Weiden

Weiden - Pep Guardiola witnessed no less than 16 goals in his first game at the FC Bayern helm on Saturday.

The 22-time Bundesliga champions ran out 15-1 winners against a Wildenau Weiden Fans' XI, as goals from Patrick Weihrauch (four), Julian Green (three), Franck Ribery (two), Mitchell Weiser (two), Oliver Markoutz, Thomas Müller, Vladimir Rankovic and Toni Kroos ushered in the Guardiola era in some style.

Jan Kirchhoff made his first appearance at centre-back, while Kroos featured for the first time following injury. Only Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg completed the full 90 minutes, 45 of which saw Ribery assume the captain's armband in the lone striker role.

Guardiola cut a typically cool figure in the dugout, despite a mix-up between second-half substitutes Tom Starke and Jerome Boateng gifting Jürgen Förster the hosts' only goal in the 54th minute, and will be hoping for much more of the same come Sunday evening's trip to TSV Regen (19:00 CET).
