Guardiola's agent in the dark over Bayern coach's future

The agent of Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola admits he has no idea what the Catalan has in mind for his future.

Guardiola's contract is up for renewal next summer and he has been linked with a move to Manchester City from next season.

Bayern's chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge suggested at the weekend that a decision - one way or another - would be made before the Bundesliga's winter break.

But Guardiola's agent Josep Maria Orobitg has told Munich's Tz newspaper that he does not know what that decision is going to be.

"Not even I know what Pep's intentions are," Orobitg said.

"We've had some intensive talks in the past few days, but when it comes to things like this, he's very private.

"He will make up his mind entirely based on his own impressions."

Guardiola has led Bayern to back-to-back Bundesliga titles, while they are five points clear at the top with a third of the current campaign gone.

Orobitg said Guardiola is "very happy" in Munich but added: "At the end of the day, it is a decision he is going to take by himself.

"One thing is for sure, however, and that is everybody around him will accept his decision, no matter what it is."

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says his side must buck up their ideas if they are to win trophies this season, branding the 5-1 win over Arsenal in midweek "a disaster".

What may have seemed like another show of Bayern's superiority in recent years was not to the Catalan's liking, and he has warned that he expects improvements if they are to realise their season's ambitions.

"We needed to play the ball around more against Arsenal," he said. "We've got to improve that.

"It was a disaster in the second half, which is why we're not yet ready to win the Champions League."

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has promised Arsenal fans they will pay a "good price" for tickets in November's Champions League return in Bavaria.

Bayern fans protested at ticket prices for the opening five minutes of last night's Champions League match in north London.

Banners in the away section declaring "£64 a ticket but without fans football is not worth a penny" were applauded by home supporters when the Bayern fans eventually took their seats.

After the match, Guardiola acknowledged that Gunners fans would not be overcharged when they head to Germany for the return match on November 4.

He told the post-match press conference: "I will speak with (Arsene) Wenger for next time to make it cheaper for our fans.

"We will take care of Arsenal fans in Munich with a good price. They can travel."

On the pitch, Arsenal won the contest 2-0, with goals from Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil keeping their hopes of qualification alive.
