Guardiola has dropped Mandzukic for cup final against Dortmund
MAY 16, 2014 9:08a ET
Guardiola says ''Basti is injured, a problem with his knee. Mandzukic is my decision.''
Schweinsteiger, who is aiming for a record seventh German Cup win, strained a tendon in his left knee in last Saturday's 1-0 Bundesliga win over Stuttgart.
Guardiola says he hopes he'll recover in time for Germany at the World Cup.
Mandzukic isn't injured. Guardiola says it was a coaching decision to leave the Croat out.
Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp says Robert Lewandowski is likely to play after shaking off a calf problem. The Polish striker, who will join Bayern for next season, broke off Thursday's training session as a precaution.
