Munich: Bayern Munich's outgoing coach Pep Guardiola has complained about moles who revealed his hard altercation with the football club's doctors and physiotherapists after being eliminated from the Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid.
"The people who have talked tried to hurt me. It has happened many times in the past three years," Guardiola said at a press conference on Friday.

Guardiola, who had seen many times things that happened off the field have reached the media, said it's something that does not do much damage to him, reports Efe.
German newspaper Bild said on Friday that Guardiola lashed out hard against the medical team after the loss against Atletico.
The newspaper spoke of a strong and brief altercation that occurred after the match, but veteran winger Franck Ribery intervened to calm things down.
Guardiola's assistant, Manel Estiarte, also joined the coach's criticism of the medical team, the paper said.
During the Guardiola era there were constant differences between the coach and the medical team of Bayern over the duration of sick leaves due to injury.
One of those discussions led to the resignation of the historic head of the medical teams of Bayern and the German national team, Hans-Wilhlem Muller-Wohlfahrt.
