Juventus director, Fabio Paratici has said they never contacted Pep Guardiola to replace Allegri as the club were yet to complete their competitions.
The Bianconeri ended their Serie A season this evening with a 2-0 defeat to Sampdoria.
And Paratici while speaking to DAZN said the club never made any contact amidst Sarri,Pochettino and Guardiola links.
”We don’t need to create headlines or go for one-upmanship, we just have to build the best possible squad. We will act in accordance with the directives of our new Coach, so must wait for him before we make any moves,” the director of sport told DAZN.
There have been many reports around Max Allegri’s replacement, including Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino, Simone Inzaghi of Lazio, Bologna boss Sinisa Mihajlovic and Pep Guardiola.
”We have clear ideas and are evaluating the situation. Until all the competitions have concluded, it seems only fair to remain quiet, out of respect for everyone.”
Paratici was asked specifically about the link with Manchester City boss Guardiola.
”It’s a strange world, this. We’ve never had contact with Guardiola and never thought about him. He is under contract, so it all seems very strange.
”We know this is what our world is like and we have to accept that.”
Paulo Dybala started this evening and he told reporters on Friday that he wanted to remain in Turin, despite his own brother’s comments to the contrary.
“He is a great player, he is ours and we have a great deal of faith in him, as proved by the investment we made to bring him here and the recent contract renewal.”
