Bayern Munich coach, Pep Guardiola, says he knows that if he doesn’t bring more trophies to the German giants, he is likely to get sacked.
Despite guiding the club to four trophies in his first season, Guardiola has come under massive criticism after Bayern dropped out of the Champions League, following 5-0 deaft on aggregate against eventual winners Real Madrid.
The club’s bosses are reportedly concerned with Guardiola’s style of play and the Spaniard knows he needs to win silverware to keep his job.
"If I don't win, then probably another coach comes here next year," he told Sport1.de in a telephone conference.
"I'm here to do as good a job as possible, like I did at Barcelona."
Many people suggest Guardiola had an influence in Germany’s World Cup triumph after six of his players were part of Joachim Low’s squad that lifted the trophy.
"I'm really pleased for them," he said.
"It's a real gift for Bayern Munich that six of our players contributed to that title."
Four years ago, the 43-year-old found himself in a similar situation with several of Spain’s World Cup winners in his Barcelona squad and he went on to guide them the La Liga title and Champions League victory.
Bayern and Guardiola have their first chance of silverware when they face Borussia Dortmund in the German Supercup.
They will surely be out for revenge after they lost the same fixture in Guardiola’s first competitive game 4-2.
