Guarin: I never wanted to join Juventus

The versatile midfielder claims that he always wanted to stay at Inter and was never interested in signing for the Serie A champions

Fredy Guarin has insisted that he is happy with life at Inter and was never interested in joining Juventus.

The Colombia international was close to signing for the Serie A champions in a player-exchange deal involving Mirko Vucinic in January, but the deal eventually fell through after fan protests.

Guarin was then again heavily linked with a move away from Inter this summer, but the versatile midfielder has stressed that he never wanted to leave.

“The affection from the Inter fans stayed with me after the failed player-exchange deal with Vucinic,” Guarin told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “And the ongoing claims that I want to go to Juventus, like earlier this summer.

“I never wanted to join Juventus and I still don’t want to go to Juventus. I am happy here and that’s it.

“I am over the moon to be here at Inter. There’s no better place for me. I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll repeat it now and will do so again in the future: Inter are the best place for me.

“I have the faith of the club, the staff and the players. It’s now up to me show that I belong here.

“I was angry when I got the feeling that Inter no longer needed me. From the moment I got here, I have always given my all to show that I deserve to be at a top club. It’s logical that you get angry when you feel that you’re no longer part of the project.”

The 28-year-old has a contract at San Siro until the summer of 2017.
