Guardiola: No problem with Ancelotti's Munich visit


Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has stressed that he does not have a problem with Carlo Ancelotti's visit to Munich this week to meet senior club officials. 

Ancelotti will replace Guardiola as the man in charge at the Allianz Arena at the end of the season and travelled to Germany on Thursday to chat with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and discuss their plans for 2016-17 and beyond. 

Guardiola did not get to meet his successor, but he is adamant he does not have any issues that Bayern have already started planning for next term.

"I did not meet Ancelotti," the Bayern coach said at a media conference.

"I was in Bochum for the DFB-Pokal game and was with my family after the match.

"But it is only normal that he paid a visit to Munich. That is not a problem for me at all."

Bayern saw off Bochum in midweek to reach the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal and a busy few weeks await as the Champions League returns as well, with Bayern set to take on Juventus later this month.

"I like it when we play a lot of games, I need a busy schedule," Guardiola added.

"Everybody is on the same wavelength in times like these and fully focussed on the job at hand.

"There is simply no time to think about other things."
