Bologna Coach Stefano Pioli has echoed the words of his President by insisting that Alessandro Diamanti will stay at the club.
The Italy international has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus this summer after imressing for the Rossoblu last term.
But the tactician has repeated the same sentiment claimed by Albano Guaraldi this morning .
“I have been reassured by the club [that Diamanti is staying],” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“The President has been very clear on the matter.
“He is our captain and our most recognisable player – so we are welcoming him back with open arms.
“We are focused on doing well next season and have been working very hard.”
