Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola insists the squad is fully behind him following suggestions that there is a mole in the dressing room.

The Bavarians have again been the dominant force in Germany this season and look well placed to finally win the Champions League under Guardiola’s stewardship following successive semi-final exits.

However, recent reports have suggested unrest within the camp after the coach’s admission that he will leave the Allianz Arena in the summer to join one of the top clubs in England.

This has led to suggestions of a potential drop in standards within the squad and Guardiola is said to have been unhappy at the condition in which a number of his stars returned from their winter break.

It has also been suggested that someone within the camp is leaking information in a possible bid to undermine the coach.

Despite the supposed unrest, Bayern returned from their break with a 2-1 win at Hamburg and will hope to continue their run against relegation candidates Hoffenheim on Sunday.

The Bavarians are the clear 1.07 favourites to win the match, while the draw is 15.00 and the visitors are 34.00.

Guardiola will be hoping for a strong performance, especially after a difficult week where he has had to fight off questions about his authority.

The former Barcelona boss is adamant all is well at the club and says his side’s record this season in the league shows everyone is committed to the cause.

“Where is the problem?” he told reporters. “The atmosphere in the team is very, very good. Otherwise we would not have lost just one single game in Bundesliga.”
