Pep Guardiola says he is "like a woman" and will be able to juggle his current role at Bayern Munich and preparations for life at Manchester City from the summer.

City confirmed Guardiola's appointment on a three-year contract on Monday, ending months of speculation over where his next destination would be with Chelsea and Manchester United also linked with him.

The Catalan, who said on Friday that the first contact with City came "in May or June", faces the challenge of ensuring his final season at Bayern ends with success on as many fronts as possible while ensuring he hits the ground running at the Etihad Stadium in the summer.

Asked how he would cope with that, he told reporters at a press conference: "I am like a woman, I can control both situations. I can think of both situations, so it's no problem for me."

The dream scenario of rounding off his Bayern reign with a Champions League, Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal treble is still achievable, and Guardiola insisted his focus is still very much on his work in Germany.

"I had my first talks with (Manchester City) in May or June," he said. "When I am in England, I will say more about it.

"If people don't trust me, then I can't change that. I know this is new for Bayern Munich - a coach has never left them before, it has always been them getting rid of their coach.

"But I will be focusing on the team until my final day here, giving my best to the very last minute."
