"Barcelona's players motivate themselves," Guardiola told Sport.
"I did not teach Xavi or Iniesta to play. Coaches are here to lend a hand but they have been playing well for 20 years. Coaches do not make good players play well. They play well enough without me.
"I imbue a certain success but it's a personal matter. With me, they did not have the same success as they did with Tito Vilanova [when Barcelona reached 100 points in one league season]."
Guardiola's Bayern side won the Bundesliga title last night.
