Man City boss Mancini: I was never worried about Guardiola

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini shrugged off Pep Guardiola's appointment as Bayern Munich coach.

Mancini claims he never felt any pressure with Guardiola lurking in the shadows.

The Italian said: "I didn't have any problem for this - I understand the newspapers should write that every manager wants to take this place because it is a good place.

"But I think we work very well here, I have a five-year contract and I think this is possible for five years."

Bayern were considered long shots to land Guardiola and his choice of club has raised eyebrows within the game.

But Mancini added: "Bayern Munich is one of the top clubs in the world for its history, like Barca.

"If he decides this it is because it is the best solution for him."
