BERLIN (REUTERS) - Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola hailed on Friday what he said was a successful season despite the crushing 5-0 aggregate defeat by Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals, and said he would not change the way his team played football.

The 0-4 second-leg loss in Munich on Tuesday was extremely bitter for the Bavarians, who had been virtually invincible up until clinching the league title with seven games left in March.

"I am surprised that we did it so well in this season," Guardiola told reporters ahead of Saturday's league game against struggling Hamburg.

"We showed a lot of good things. I am satisfied with this squad. We were outstanding with this system and these players," said the Spaniard, who joined Bayern this season after a year out following a hugely successful four years at Barcelona.
