Guardiola insists his contract talks shouldn't affect Man City players

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists new contract talks shouldn't affect his players.

Guardiola, whose deal runs out in June, denied suggestions that he had opened negotiations with the club's hierarchy over an extension on Friday.

Asked whether players' mentalities could alter with added stability, Guardiola said: "Absolutely not.

"They want to play well every single game.

"When they are on the pitch they do absolutely everything with one manager or another one, because they are incredible professional. Nothing changes, absolutely not."
