I don’t want to be a problem for Bayern – Guardiola

Pep Guardiola has said that he will not sign a fresh contract with Bayern Munich until he is absolutely sure it is in the best interests of all parties.

Speculation has raged over the future of the Catalan coach, whose contract is up next year, and there have even been suggestions he has already agreed to take over at Manchester City.

The 44-year-old has not confirmed his plans, but admits that it is not certain he will remain at the Allianz Arena.

“I am coach of Bayern and I am grateful to be here,” he said at a press conference.

“I haven’t decided my future yet. As soon as I come to a decision, I will inform Kalle Rummenige, Matthias Sammer and Uli Hoeness.

“We still have a lot of time. But if I will extend my contract, I must be absolutely sure that it is the best for the club. I don’t want to become a problem for FC Bayern.

“I did my very best, am doing my very best, will do my very best.

“I haven’t receive any offer from another club.”
