“City Haven’t Broken Rules, I’ve Seen Proof” – Guardiola

 “City Haven’t Broken Rules, I’ve Seen Proof” – Guardiola

Pep Guardiola says he has been shown proof that Manchester City are innocent of the financial irregularities that have seen the club hit with a European ban.

City, who face Real Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, have been handed a two-year suspension after being found guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play regulations by UEFA.

The club, who intend to appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport, have often cited “irrefutable evidence” that they have not violated FFP regulations, and speaking at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday evening, Guardiola revealed he has been given a run down of the case by City chiefs.

Guardiola, who has won the Champions League twice while in charge at Barcelona but has never been beyond the quarterfinals with City, insists his players should not need a potential ban as extra motivation as they attempt to progress at the expense of the Zinedine Zidane’s 13-times winners.
