MUNICH — Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says there is no conflict between his current position and preparing for his future role at Manchester City.

Guardiola says "I can control both situations."

The Spaniard was visibly annoyed regarding questions about his future club, saying "I'll only talk about Manchester City in May, June. I'll talk about Manchester City in England."

Ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga game at Bayer Leverkusen, Guardiola also hit out at the media, saying "there's no respect these days for our job. It's all the same what we say. People don't believe my words."

Guardiola has announced he will leave Bayern at the end of the season. On Monday, City announced that Guardiola would take over as coach on a three-year deal.
