Klinsmann dismisses Blues rumours

Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann has dismissed reports suggesting he is to replace Mark Hughes as manager of Manchester City in the summer. Former Manchester United striker Hughes' future has often been questioned by the media this season with the Blues' form inconsistent following the club's takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group.

While Bayern boss Klinsmann has recently received criticism in Germany after a string of poor league results since Christmas.

However, the ex-Tottenham front-man has played down rumours he is set to leave the German champions at the end of the season, insisting he is fully focussed on winning trophies with the Allianz Arena outfit.

"I always tell my players, like Franck Ribery, that if there is speculation about other clubs wanting you it is a compliment to Bayern and yourself," he told the Daily Mail.

"If you hear of an offer, you must be flattered, and it applies to managers and coaches as much as players.

"But I am under contract to Bayern until the end of next season, and my only thought at the moment is trying to win as many trophies as possible in that time."
