A four-year investigation from the Premier League found that City had allegedly breached rules over nine seasons and the Blues could be facing the most serious of punishments as a result, including points deductions and expulsion from the Football League if found guilty.
The matter will now go to an independent commission, with both the Premier League and City making their case.
City took UEFA on and with Lord Pannick KC of Blackstone Chambers representing them, were ultimately victorious, as the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) overturned a two-year ban from European club competitions.
And when the ban was announced, Guardiola addressed his City players and in a rallying cry, told them he wasn’t going anywhere.
“Whatever league we’re in, I will still be here,” Guardiola said while looking his team in the eye, as per The Sun.
A couple of years on and Guardiola said he told the club in no uncertain terms that he chose to defend them but made it clear he would leave if those higher up lied to him.
“Why did I defend the club and the people?
“I put my faith in you because I believe you 100 per cent from day one and I defend the club because of that.
City have said they welcome the review and the chance to clear their name.
