thumbnail Hello,

The manager is hoping Bayern Munich take their Bundesliga game with Hoffenheim seriously, despite their upcoming Champions League quarter-final with the Premier League champions

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says he has put all thoughts of his side's Champions League quarter-final clash with Manchester United to the back of his mind.

The Bavarians wrapped up the Bundesliga title with victory over Hertha Berlin on Tuesday and face Hoffenheim on Saturday before their trip to Old Trafford three days later.

However, the Spaniard is insistent that his players must focus on their latest league clash and wants them to perfect their game against Markus Gisdol's men.

"We want to keep going. I don't think it's necessary to say that to the players," he told a press conference.

"We need to play as much as possible to prepare for the quarter-final in Manchester. I don't want the players to think about the Champions League.

"In every game we can improve the small details."

Meanwhile, Guardiola confirmed that back-up keeper Tom Starke would line up against his former club after impressing in training.

"He deserves it. He continues to train well, is a super guy and always supports the team."
