Pep Guardiola rejects Juventus rumours

Pep Guardiola believes that Manchester City supporters are growing fond of playing in the Champions League despite their persistent protests against organisers Uefa.

"I have two more years and moving is impossible unless they sack me. I am not going to Juventus for the next two seasons".

Reports in Italy had suggested that Guardiola was in line to replace Massimiliano Allegri in Turin this summer and sign a four-year deal.

Pep Guardiola apologised if Manchester City's opener against Watford was offside, but blamed other clubs for not backing VAR this season. However it seems Guardiola won't be joining Juventus this season.

Similarly, a "verbal agreement" wouldn't impact his position at City until the end of the current season.

The protests have intensified since 2014, when the club was fined £49million for breaching Uefa's Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

City have won three Premier League titles since 2012 but are still to transfer their domestic success to the European stage. The Football Association, meanwhile, is investigating a claim City made a banned payment to the agent of then 14-year-old Jadon Sancho when he joined the club from Watford four years ago. Among the allegations are claims City over-inflated sponsorship deals to avoid FFP penalties. But the team now has Massimo Allegri as coach, with the 51-year-old leading the team to four straight Serie A titles with a fifth to come, while also finishing as Champions League runner-up two times. "I thought they are the favourites because I thought, "if they can win three, they can win four", but there still remains some incredible clubs".

Guardiola is happy to take a lead into the game at the Etihad Stadium, having lost 3-0 to Liverpool in the quarter-final first-leg last season, but he is determined not to allow for complacency.

Guardiola, who dismissed reports linking him with Juventus at the weekend, reiterated his determination to see out his contract with City.
