Metzelder talks up Bayern link

Schalke defender Christoph Metzelder says he would be honoured to receive an offer from Bayern Munich to form part of the backroom staff of future coach Pep Guardiola.

Metzelder's current contract at Schalke expires at the end of the season
 Christoph Metzelder says he is a man in demand

The former Germany international, 32, has been linked with a move to Bayern by Spanish radio station Radio Marca with his linguistic ability and knowledge of German football making him a candidate to assist Guardiola when he takes charge of the Bavarian giants in the summer.

Speaking to RevierSport newspaper after Schalke's 2-0 win over Werder Bremen, he admitted such an offer would be attractive.

"I'm holding a lot of talks at the moment, but I have not yet made a decision about my future," Metzelder said. "If there is any truth in the rumour, then that would be a great honour for me."

Metzelder's playing time this season has been limited by a string of injuries and he admits it may be his last year as a player.

"I have not yet decided whether I will end my career at the end of this season and maybe go into coaching or management," he added.

"All I can say is that I will be leaving Schalke at the end of the season."
