LVG not worried about Pep

Dutchman believes his job is safe

Louis van Gaal is paying little attention to the rumours linking Pep Guardiola with Manchester United.

Having previously announced his intention to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season, Guardiola this week revealed that he wanted to manage in the Premier League.

Although Manchester City are the favourites to land the Spaniard, Manchester United has been mentioned as a possible destination with Van Gaal's future at Old Trafford far from certain.

Van Gaal's position came under scrutiny during a poor run of form in December but the Dutchman believes his job is safe for now and he insists he is not worried about Guardiola's imminent arrival in the Premier League.

"Every manager has that right to announce (he is leaving)," Van Gaal said.

"I'm at the end of my career so for me it's not so interesting, for me (Guardiola's declaration) is interesting how I take care of Manchester United in my contract and after this season I still have one year to go."

When asked whether Guardiola was wrong to announce his departure from Bayern Munich before the end of the season, Van Gaal replied: "I have said that two years ago also so it's not so strange.

"Some people are looking a little bit strange to that fact but that's good.

"Managers have ambitions and Pep Guardiola has that ambition too and he wants to sniff to the culture of England and the Premier League and I wanted that also.

"I think that it is very good he wants to do that and I don't think it will interfere in his club now."
