Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has finally broken silence over his potential move to Juventus by reassuring City fans that he will remain at the Etihad.

The Spaniard has been linked with a number of top clubs including Juventus after enjoying another impressive season at Manchester City.

However Guardiola intends to see out his current contract which expires in June 2021.

He told City’s official website: ‘There’s no better place in the world to play and do your job as a manager than in England.

“I can compare it to Spain and Germany. I haven’t been to other countries, but they would be quite similar. If I go to Italy it would be quite similar to Spain. ‘In other places fans boo you if you don’t win but here it’s always supportive. It’s like I am in a blue shirt and I am one of you. “I remember in the first year it was difficult. After the defeat to Monaco in the Champions League and we were not doing well in the Premier League, the people still supported you. “The important thing is the club followed our idea. Normally at most clubs if you win that is perfect and if you lose that is not good. Here it doesn’t happen, that is one of the reasons why I decide to come here.

“I didn’t win a title in the first year and people still supported us. I will never forget that. “You can work calmly. It’s the ideal. It’s the perfect place to work. I don’t know at other clubs in England but I especially feel it here. That’s why I am happy to reward their confidence with my players for the next two seasons.”
