Pep Guardiola said he intends to honour his contract at Barcelona after the Catalans beat Manchester United.
The Spanish giants saw off the Red Devils in the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley thanks to goals from Pedro, Lionel Messi and David Villa, while Wayne Rooney scored for United.
There had been speculation before the game that Guardiola could step down from the Barcelona post but he indicated he will stay on.
When asked if he would still be their boss next term, he told Sky Sports News: "I have one year of the contract, yes."
The Barcelona boss believed his side had put in one of their best performances to lift the trophy for the second time in three years.
"It is one of the best performances because sometimes you make for performances in important games but not important games like this one," he said.
The Barcelona boss also praised the way his side stuck to their footballing philosophies to achieve the victory.
"So we are so happy to win, of course, but we are so, so happy to show to the world our way to play, to keep the ball, to try to attack in front of absolutely one of the best teams of the world," he said.
