Reports in Italy have suggested Guidolin, 56, was considering taking a one-year break from management, while he has also been linked with Inter Milan.

Guidolin, who is under contract with the Bianconeri until June 2015, led Udinese to third place in Serie A this season and a historic second successive Champions League qualification.

"This city is my home,'' Guidolin told Gazzetta dello Sport. "I am not going anywhere. I will still be the coach of Udinese next season.''
