Guardiola ends Bayern Munich press briefing after question on England job

Bayern Munich’s coach, Pep Guardiola, walked out of a press conference on Friday after being asked about reports linking him with the England manager’s job.

Guardiola’s contract is up for renewal next summer and he has been keen to avoid the subject, repeating that he does not wish to talk about his future.

He has been linked with a move to Manchester City and the Sun reported on Friday that he was being lined up as the successor to Roy Hodgson.

When pressed on the subject before Bayern’s match at Mainz on Saturday, Guardiola rose from his seat and bade farewell. “Oh come on, I’m coach of Bayern Munich,” he said. “Many thanks and auf wiedersehen.”

The 44-year-old had deflected an initial inquiry into his future plans with a polite “next question please”.

Bayern have recently cooled talk of extending Guardiola’s contract, saying negotiations will be held as and when the former Barcelona coach is ready. – the guardian-
