Guardiola cool over Fabregas

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has distanced himself from reports linking Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas with a switch to the Catalan giants.

The La Liga champions have been widely tipped to take the Spain international back to the Camp Nou, but after being quizzed by journalists, the coach brushed off the news.

He said:"It's not my business, it's not my job. I'm sorry.

"He's a player for Arsenal, so Arsene Wenger has the say. You have to ask them.

"You know him better than me (the media), you see him each weekend, he's a good player, that's why he is here with the Spanish team and not on his holidays.

Meanwhile, Guardiola was less than impressed with Yaya Toure's decision to join Manchester City, but he has wished him well as he joins his brother Kolo at the Premier League outfit.

"It's not a good move for us, he is a top player," he added."I would like him to be with us and stay but he wants to move on.

"So when a player doesn't want to stay at the club we have to move on. I wish him all the best, he is an excellent guy.

"I want to thank him for the last few years at Barcelona, the last three years with me.

"Without him it would have been impossible to win seven trophies in two seasons and I wish him all the best in Manchester."
