Pep Guardiola says he was “incredibly happy” at Bayern Munich, but insists he will see out his contract at Manchester City.
Guardiola has been linked to the vacant manager’s job at the Allianz Arena following the sacking of Niko Kovac earlier this month.
The Spaniard, whose current City deal runs until the summer of 2021, won seven trophies in three seasons with Bayern from 2013-2016.
Asked about a potential Bayern return ahead of City’s Saturday Night Football clash against Chelsea, Guardiola told Sky Sports:
“When these things appear, is it the media or the club? We don’t know. It could be one guy [starting a rumour] and then people take it.
“I like the people from Bayern a lot. I was incredibly happy there, but they know I’m a guy that respects what I sign.
“In football, when you are not getting results you can be sacked but in this case if the club [Manchester City] wants me, I want to stay here.
“It doesn’t matter if Bayern want me or not in the future. My love for the city, the club and the people I met there is incredible.
“It is the same in Barcelona because it is my hometown, but the same happened here. I have more things to do.”
