He says it's up to the club to decide whether he's the right coach.

Guardiola says on Friday that Bayern "will play with my ideas next year," news agency dpa reported. He says of the Bundesliga champion's current squad: "These players will play with my ideas — 100 percent."

Guardiola's tactics have drawn scrutiny after Real Madrid outfoxed Bayern in the Champions League semifinals, thrashing the German side 4-0 in Munich on Tuesday to complete a 5-0 aggregate win.

Guardiola says Bayern's top officials have to decide "whether the coach is the right man for the club." The club leadership hasn't raised any doubts over his position.
