Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has worried a few club faithfuls over his future following some controversial statements at a fan Q&A this weekend.
The 44-year-old revealed that he is ready to speak about his future at the club after the season, but also confused many by talking about his time at Bayern in past tense.
“Personally, this was a great challenge, even for my wife and the children,” he said, as quoted by German paper Bild.
“No matter what will happen, I had a great time, I was very happy to be the coach of Bayern. It was a dream come true.”
Bild report that the 300 fans first applauded their coach for his words, but were left wondering after he refused to commit his future to the club.
On several occasions, Guardiola reportedly denied to answer questions about his future, saying the summer will bring more clarity.
The Spaniard’s current contract with the German giants runs until 2016, but many are speculating that Guardiola is linking his future to his success in the Champions League this season.
Bayern have won four titles under Guardiola in his first season at the club, but lost 5-0 on aggregate to Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.
Manchester City have been linked with the services of the 44-year-old, with Guardiola’s former Barcelona compatriots, Ferran Soriano and Txiki Bergiristain, already at the club.
