After the rumour of a possible appointing of Pep Guardiola as new Juventus manager, Manchester City denied this possibility through the words of Alberto Galassi, lawyer of the club and member of the English club's board: "As Manchester City advisor, I was very surprised to read that a news agency broke a completely nonsensical news. What Pep said last week 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 a news of this magnitude. They should have contacted us first, it's impossible to think that there will be a presentation in a few days. The news is completely untrue and I have to compliment Sky and Di Marzio for not spreading this rumour. It's ridiculous.
"The coach's desire is to stay, Pep is an amazing professional. - Galassi continued - 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. Recently I spoke with Nedved and we had a laugh at his, just let Pep be and enjoy his holiday"
