Guidolin makes Udinese pledge

Francesco Guidolin says he’ll continue his coaching career with Udinese. “Inter won’t call me up.”

The tactician, contracted to the outfit until June 2015, admitted on Sunday night that he could need a break from the game.

However, in an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport, he says he expects to still be on the touchline at the Stadio Friuli.

“The people are asking me not to leave and there is no danger that I will,” he stated. “Udine is my home.

“I’ve had a long and complicated season,” he added after 51 games. “But I have passion, I love to Coach and live through games with my players.

“There is pressure and anxiety, but I’ll beat that with yoga.”

Guidolin has been linked with a possible future at Inter, but he insists a San Siro move is not in his plans.

“No, Inter President Massimo Moratti won’t call and I’m happy with the Pozzo family at Udinese,” he underlined.

Looking ahead to next season, which will start with a Champions League preliminary round tie, the Coach wanted his key players to remain.

“I hope that the club leave Kwadwo Asamoah with me, he’s a real strength. Meanwhile, Antonio Di Natale is a genius who wins you games. He’s the best player I have coached.”
