Pep Guardiola has rejected suggestions
Pep Guardiola has rejected suggestions that taking over at Manchester City in the summer is unlikely to be a distraction in the next six months at Bayern Munich.
He remains in charge of the German club after having announced his departure a few months ago. He has decided not to renew his contract with the Bavarians after having joined the club in 2013.
Guardiola spoke about an impending move to the Premier League – without revealing his precise destination – after announcing his departure from Bayern. The destination has now been revealed as City,who have been courting him for a long time.
Guardiola is one of the revered managers in world football after having won a whopping 19 different titles in his six years as a manager. This trophy list includes two Champions League titles. However, he has been unable to lift the trophy since leaving Barcelona with many suggesting that Guardiola was heavily dependent on players like Lionel Messi to help him win the competition, which is seen as one of the toughest. He will be joining a City team that has witnessed massive amounts of investment in recent years. This will only be going up with Guardiola expected to sign a number of stars.
The 45-year-old remains focused on his job at hand and says that the City job will not be a distraction. "Why would it be difficult? I am like a woman, I can multi-task and control both situations. I have a big talent for this.I cannot say something every week about it. It is another four months and for me it is not a problem. Newspapers can continue attacking and I will continue doing my job.Coaches get little respect these days. It is everywhere like that. In Madrid, Barcelona, Germany, England,” said the former Barcelona manager.
