Juventus keeper Buffon prefers Sarri over Guardiola

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon has dismissed talk of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola joining the Turin giants.

It's been claimed Guardiola is a target for Juve and would be open to a move after City's two season Champions League suspension.

But Buffon told Le Iene: "I hope that (Maurizio) Sarri will remain, because it will mean that we will have won something.

"To change the coach it was necessary to go through a different process and it takes time.

"It is right to try something different to achieve the right results."
