Magath concedes Champions League is beyond Bayern

BERLIN, May 11 (Reuters) - Coach Felix Magath said winning the Champions League was beyond Bayern Munich's reach, but added he was very satisfied at winning two German domestic league and cup doubles in his first two seasons in charge.

"Winning the Champions League is unrealistic," Magath said in an interview in Thursday's daily Bild.

Other Bayern bosses have expressed similar views recently, saying the 20-times German champions do not want to open their wallets for top talent.

"Next season, we'll have to wait and see how all our international players recover from the World Cup," Magath added, warning of a slow start. "The tournament can hurt us."

Magath faced criticism from Bayern executives following the club's Champions League round of 16 exit against AC Milan. He complained that his accomplishments were not respected. Bayern last won the Champions League in 2001.

"The German double is a great achievement," he said.

"We defended both titles. I was disappointed, too, at getting knocked out of the Champions League, but I can't figure out what the difference is between going out in the round of 16 or the semi-final when it's against a good team like AC Milan."
