Manchester City board member speaks out on the rumors linking Pep Guardiola with Juventus

It has been reported today by AGI that Guardiola will sign a contract with Juventus on June 4th.

The current coach Max Allegri announced that he is leaving Juventus this summer and Guardiola has been linked with the managerial job at the Serie A side.

However, a Manchester City board member Alberto Galassi has dismissed the rumors that Guardiola will be Juventus coach next season.

“As a Manchester City advisor, I was very surprised to read that a news agency broke completely nonsensical news,” Galassi told Sky Sport Italia .

“What Pep said last week obviously went unheard. First of all, the coach wants to stay at the club and he still has two years left on his contract.

“Second, a club like Juventus wouldn’t have allowed the leak of news of this magnitude. They would have contacted us first.

“It’s impossible to think that there will be a presentation in a few days. The news is completely untrue. It’s ridiculous. The coach’s desire is to stay, Pep is an amazing professional.

“He can’t understand why his words are not being considered. Honestly we don’t understand why a club should explain a sure fact, Guardiola wants to stay.”
