Guardiola not looking ahead to Champions League quarterfinal

The Spaniard is hoping his side takes its Bundesliga game with Hoffenheim seriously, despite the upcoming Champions League quarterfinal.
Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says he has put thoughts of his side's Champions League quarterfinal clash with Manchester United in 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 says his players must focus on their 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 said during a press conference. "We need to play as much as possible to prepare for the quarterfinal 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 backup keeper Tom Starke will line up against his former club after impressing in training.

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