Xabi Alonso has insisted that he and his Bayern Munich teammates have not been affected by Pep Guardiola's decision to leave the club for Manchester City.
The Spaniard has agreed to take over at the Etihad Stadium in the summer.
Before he arrives in the Premier League, the former Barcelona boss will finish the season at Bayern, who were held to a goalless draw by Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend, which is only the third time this season that they have failed to win in the Bundesliga.
In the match, Alonso was sent off for a second yellow card, but the midfielder has claimed that the team are not distracted by their manager's imminent departure.
"In my eyes, the atmosphere in the squad is the same as before Christmas," Alonso told TZ. "We know how football works and that there are many harassing the environment of a club like Bayern Munich.
"With us in the squad, however, and that is still what ultimately really matters - everything is as it always was."
Bayern currently have an eight-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table.
