Beleaguered Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini has moved to kill speculation that he might leave the club because of its financial problems.
But Pellegrini told a news conference: "I'm staying here to help the club through these tough times.
"It's just unfortunate that everything has been left until the last minute."
Rondon and Cazorla were among several players who had complained about unpaid wages at Malaga as it struggles to cope with financial fair play rules.
Pellegrini told the news conference, published on the club's official website: "As soon as the situation is sorted out with the players then I'll stop worrying.
"I feel responsible that some of the team who didn't make an official complaint did so because of me. My relationship with the club is a good one. I have no problems staying here and fulfilling my obligations in the future."
He said the spirit in the team was "untouchable" despite everything that had been going on and the players were determined to press in La Liga for a UEFA Champions League place.
There had been reports that Pellegrini's wages were causing problems for the troubled club.
