thumbnail Hello,

The Catalan giants’ supremo has reacted defiantly to rumours linking his coach with a move to Inter next season, insisting that he will do everything in his power to keep him

Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has expressed his intentions to keep coach Pep Guardiola at the club amid recent speculation surrounding the 41-year-old's future in Catalunya.

Eyebrows were raised after Guardiola appeared to have failed in committing himself to the Camp Nou cause for the long haul, with reports in Italy on Saturday suggesting that Inter supremo Massimo Moratti has identified him as the man to take control of his club next season.

However, Rosell has dismissed the negative connotations in Guardiola’s comments, vowing to ensure the best coach in the club's history continues his magnificent work in Barcelona.

"We will do our best to keep Guardiola," Rosell told La Repubblica. "He is the best coach in the history of the club and is also a great person. We will do our best to keep him."

The Spanish and European champions are currently at the top of the table in La Liga after six rounds of matches, level on points with Levante, and one ahead of bitter rivals Real Madrid.
