Pep rules out Juve move


Pep Guardiola has ruled out leaving Manchester City this summer to become the new manager at Juventus.

The Italian giants are searching for a new manager after it was announced that Massimiliano Allegri will leave at the end of the season.

Allergi has been at the club for five years and in that time he has won five Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia four times, while he guided Juventus to the Champions League final in 2015 and 2017.

Guardiola has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus, but the Spaniard insists he has no plans to leave Manchester City any time soon.

"I'm not going to Juventus or to Italy. I have two more years here," he told reporters ahead of Saturday's FA Cup.

"I'm not going to move, I'm satisfied here, I'm not going anywhere. Next season I will be manager of Manchester City."

Just last month Allegri said that he expected to stay next season but his departure was confirmed in a brief statement on Friday.

"Massimiliano Allegri will not be on the Juventus bench for the 2019/2020 season," the statement read.

"The coach and the President, Andrea Agnelli, will meet the media together at tomorrow's press conference - Saturday 18 May, at 2pm (local time) in the press conference hall of Allianz Stadium."

Allegri will remain in charge for Juventus' final two Serie A games of the season.

Manchester City can complete the domestic treble if they beat Watford in the FA Cup final on Saturday, 18 May live on eir sport 1 [kick-off 5.30pm]. Subscribe here
