Pellegrini: We don’t know what Pep will do

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has once again been forced to dismiss suggestions that Bayern München coach Pep Guardiola is set to replace him at the end of the current campaign.
 
Some of Europe's biggest clubs are waiting with bated breath for news relating to Guardiola's future plans, with the former Barca boss entering the final six months of his contract with the German giants.

The rumour mill has gone into overdrive in recent weeks, with many claiming Guardiola will announce his intention to part ways with Bayern at the end of his contract.

As such, the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have been credited with a strong interest in Guardiola.

Pellegrini, in particular, has been forced to field questions over his own future on more than one occasion. However, he remains confident that his position at the Etihad is not under threat.

"We don't know what Pep will do next season," Pellegrini told reporters. "After that I think Pep is one of the best coaches in the world so if he doesn't continue at Bayern maybe a lot of teams can try to have him manage their team. In my case, I don't have any pressure about that."

He added: "For me the only important thing is to see what I did in my career. If I finish this season winning the Premier League, to win two Premier Leagues in three years and [finish as] runner up [once] is very important. I'm very happy about my career and my work.

"If I am a manager for around 25 years in different countries and continents and different teams and come to England and have the highest scoring team in history here, that's something for me to be happy about.

"Every owner has the right to see what is the best future for their club. It's not my problem because I don't think for them.

"My thinking is to try to win and continue in a job where I am happy. After that it's not my decision."
