Inter Milan president Moratti denies making move for Barcelona coach Guardiola

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti denies they made a move for Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola in the summer.

Reports were suggesting that the two men spoke while Guardiola was in Italy to watch former club Brescia take on Ascoli in Serie B.

“I didn’t meet Guardiola,” stated Moratti. “Absolutely not. I’ve been asked about this story, but it is not true.”

Pouring more cold water on that kind of speculation is Brescia chief Gino Corioni, the man who signed Guardiola as a player a decade ago.

“I really don’t think that a marriage with Inter is on the cards right now,” Corioni told FC Inter News on Tuesday.

“Pep is happy at Barcelona. I can exclude his arrival in Italy. Obviously you can never say never in football, but I think it would be difficult to see him leave Barcelona.”
