Guardiola denies anti-Barca tweets

Sergi Guardiola has denied authoring pro-Real Madrid, anti-Barcelona, Lionel Messi and Catalonia tweets that led to his Barca B contract being rescinded.

Guardiola only signed for the B team on Monday but when the messages from 2013 came to light, the club withdraw his deal, Marca confirms.

“It was a misunderstanding. I didn’t write those tweets. It was in 2013 and I didn’t know they were there. I wouldn’t be able to do something like that,” the Alcorcon midfielder claimed in an appearance on Onda Cero’s Al Primer Toque.

“The situation is screwed up. I apologise to Barcelona and Catalonia. Barca have been very good to me and I understand the decision. I beg their pardon. I’ve learned a hard lesson.

“I’m from Mallorca, I’m not anti-Catalan or anti-anything. My dream was to be with Barca, and now that’s truncated. Once you become a professional, you want to play for the best team and that’s Barca.

“I’m going to train at Jumilla, to my house, and then we’ll see what happens.”
