Pep Guardiola has staunchly defended his Manchester City club and owners against accusations of breaching FFP among other hideous crimes against football.
City has been accused with enough evidence of breaking rules anywhere possible to try and reach the summit but Guardiola has claimed innocence on behalf of his owners.
“I said many times I trust the club, the people,” Guardiola told a news conference ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Watford.
“I know we won the Premier League and just talk about that, I’m sorry, if we did something wrong we’ll be banned, but right now I know people are waiting for us to be guilty but we are innocent until proven guilty.
“That’s all around the world, we accept it, I spoke with the chairman, the CEO. I know what they did and I trust them – that’s all.
“I’m not going to answer any more questions, my opinion is clear, everything is what would happen, we are innocent today and we’ll see in the future.
“We are innocent, UEFA are now working with the lawyers. I’m not a lawyer, I don’t know what’s [happening] behind the scenes. I don’t know what will happen but we are innocent today.”
