The Bayern Munich manager, Pep Guardiola, has denied he wants to sign the Chelsea defender David Luiz. The former Barcelona manager said he was more than happy with the squad he has at his disposal, despite the German Super Cup defeat to Borussia Dortmund, in which Bayern lost 4-2.
"David Luiz will not be coming to Munich," he said. "I have four, five central defenders who I am very pleased with." The defeat to Dortmund, said the 42-year-old, changes nothing.
"There are no excuses for that defeat. We have seen how hard it is to win all the time. We didn't have Franck [Ribéry] and he is a very important player for us. It hurt us that he could not play."
Guardiola was speaking ahead of the Audi Cup, which starts on Wednesday. Bayern will be joined by São Paulo, Manchester City and Milan in the pre-season tournament.
The Bundesliga starts on 9 August with Bayern facing Borussia Mönchengladbach in the first game of the season.
