Guardiola: I Would Leave Bayern if Asked

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola said he would be happy to leave the German giant after just one season if the club's hierarchy is not happy with his work. Guardiola has already won three trophies with Bayern this season: the UEFA Supercup, the FIFA Club World Cup, and the German Bundesliga title, while also guiding the team to the German Cup final and the UEFA Champions League semifinals, both of which have yet to be played.

However, Bayern has endured a bit of a dip in form, taking just one point from its last three Bundesliga games, which has resulted in some criticism of the former Barcelona coach’s methods. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, the Spaniard said he would be happy to move on if he found that the club wanted a change.

“I have to accept the criticism,” he said. “I tell myself 'Pep, calm down.' You are here to work as well as possible, and my best talent is work, work, work. I am here to help the club, and if the club do not want me, a handshake and no problem for me.”
