Del Piero: 'Guardiola a good fit'

Legend Alessandro Del Piero admits it would be “interesting” to see Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola at Juventus and predicts “a hot summer”.

Pep Guardiola has been linked with a move to the Allianz Stadium and the speculation swelled up when Manchester City were punished by the FFP and banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach is tied to the Citizens until June 2021, but Del Piero expects something to happen already this summer.

“I think Guardiola is a good fit for every club for what he did in the past and what he is doing now,” Del Piero told Sky Sports News. “He won I Germany, he won in Spain and now I guess what’s missing is Italy and France.

“It could be really interesting to see him in Italy, definitely. This summer will be a hot summer, also in football.”

Juventus prepare to face Lyon on February 26 in the first leg of the last 16 in the Champions League and Del Piero insisted that they are among the favourites to win the competition.

“Both Liverpool and Juventus are big challengers for the Champions League, and why not Real Madrid,” he added. “With the Champions League it doesn’t matter what is going on in your own league, it creates different vibes and it’s always like this.”
