Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is keen to continue his relationship with the club after insisting he is not waiting for any offers from elsewhere.

Guardiola took charge of the German powerhouses in June 2013 and has led them to success in the Bundesliga and in domestic and European cup competition.

His time has been dogged by speculation over swapping leagues, most notably to England and to names like Manchester City, with his current Bayern deal set to run out in 2016.

However, the former Barcelona boss told a press conference: "Of course I'll stay here. I haven't had a contract offer and I am not waiting for a contract offer from anyone else.

"I'm happy here at Bayern, my only idea right now is to stay and work for this club here.

"I can stay in this club five or six years even. This also depends on the players. I'm not the most important thing for the club."

The Belgian has been below par for the majority of the season, which was highlighted by his performance against Barcelona.

"Vincent is an experienced player with a strong character. He must receive the criticism that everyone receives when our team doesn't have the performance that everyone hopes for.

"I think it's not a problem for him, I am sure that he will have a strong reaction."

Video: Barcelona star Neymar confronts Man City fan

Barcelona forward Neymar appeared to confront a Manchester City fan at the full-time whistle of the Champions League clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Neymar was substituted in the 80th minute of the last-16 first-leg game, which Barca won 2-1, and footage posted on YouTube shows the 23-year-old apparently remonstrating with a section of City's support from the visiting dugout.

Once the full-time whistle was blown, the Brazilian then walked to the pitch side and looked to be in a heated discussion with one City supporter in particular, with stewards intervening to defuse the situation.

Luis Suarez scored twice on his return to England although City striker Sergio Aguero narrowed the deficit before Lionel Messi missed an injury-time penalty. Watch highlights on our Champions League site.
