Guardiola, however, has hinted winning the appeal against their UEFA ban could now sway his thinking.
He said, "My opinion hasn't changed. Maybe I would be able to stay here longer but people cannot understand how difficult it was for everyone as a club being under suspicion. Now we have proven it at the court, we go again on the pitch.
"Now is not the time. We have one month in front of us. One year for a manager is a long, long time and the decisions we thought to do before the sentence it was quite similar now. I was happy before and now. We have time to talk about this."
