The difficulty of preparing to move country to manage a new club while still trying to win three trophies with a current one would cause several managers to have a meltdown.

Not Pep Guardiola.

The future Manchester City boss brushed off concerns that planning for his new job will derail Bayern Munich’s season, even comparing his multi-tasking skills to that of a woman.

Bayern are still fighting for a Champions League, Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal treble but the 45-year-old has insisted his focus remains with the German champions.

As quoted by the Independent, he told reporters: “I am like a woman, I can control both situations. I can think of both situations, so it’s no problem for me.”

Guardiola was speaking for the first time since his future predecessor, Manuel Pellegrini, broke the news on Monday that the Spaniard will take over at the end of the campaign.

He added: “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.”

It’s like Bayern are a boy or a girl who is used to being the one to break up a relationship but, for the first time, has to deal with the partner calling things off.

Still focussed

But Guardiola insisted that Bayern have nothing to worry about.

He said: “I will be focusing on the team until my final day here, giving my best to the very last minute.”

The Spaniard has won two Bundesliga titles and is well on his way to making it a hat-trick (Bayern lead second-placed Borussia Dortmund by eight points), but a Champions League winners medal is still missing from his collection of awards won at Bayern following successive semi-final defeats.

You have to think a European medal is the one he is gunning for most to conclude his Bayern spell.

According to the Daily Mail, Guardiola is keen to sign Everton’s £50 million-rated defender John Stones and Juventus star Paul Pogba for £80m upon his arrival at City.
