On his link with Manchester City, Guardiola said yesterday:
“I have said it 200 million times. I have one more year left on my contract and I will remain here next season,” he said, attempting to end the lingering hopes he would take charge of City this summer. “I didn’t come here as ‘the best trainer in the world’,” he added. “That is so much crap.
“From the beginning here in Munich I did my very best. I hope it is enough for the players, for the fans, for the legends of Bayern Munich and for the journalists and, if not, I am sorry. It was a dream when Bayern Munich asked me to come here.
“I have won everything in Barcelona and won plenty here but it was down to the players. I won everything in Barcelona because I had this super team full of great players. Last year in Munich I won almost everything but that, too, was down to the players. I am a good trainer for my team – that is all.”
