Guidolin makes Udinese U-turn

Francesco Guidolin has committed his future to Udinese after initially suggesting that he could step down as boss.

The Coach intimated on Sunday night that he could quit the Stadio Friuli outfit after another stressful and long campaign in Serie A.

Patron Giampaolo Pozzo yesterday rejected such a possibility and the Coach himself now says he’ll be back on the touchline with the Zebrette.

“This city is my home,” he noted. “I won’t be going anywhere else. I’ll now just go to my house and rest for a while.”

The tactician successfully led the Bianconeri into the Champions League for the second consecutive season after finishing the term in third.

“I just did what was expected of me,” he added. “The club gave me some valid players to work with and those who are good proved that.

“The merit goes to the players who have talent and quality. They’ve allowed us to dream for the last two seasons.”

Guidolin is contracted to Udinese until 2015. He’s made it clear on numerous occasions that they will be his last Italian club.
