Pep Guardiola has passionately defended Manchester City following the allegations that have been made against his club.
Man City have been accused of wrongdoing by the Premier League, just years after Uefa accused them of doing something similar.
While City have been charged with 113 counts of wrongdoing, Guardiola believes that this investigation will have a similar outcome to the one that Uefa conducted.
Uefa did in fact find City to be guilty, banning them from European football for two years, but they got away with it on the technicality of the alleged offences being outside “a time bar for rule-breaking”.
With the accusation from UEFA, the club proved we were completely innocent, why should now be condemned?
“Nineteen teams of the Premier League are accusing us without the chance to defend, and the words of my chairman, my CEO, my owner explain everything.
PEP 💬 I am not moving from this seat. I can assure you. More than ever.— Manchester City (@ManCity) February 10, 2023
You know what side I am on.
“What is going to happen I don’t know, but personally I am happy we are here.
Like UEFA we have the chance to defend.
I think the Premier League, supported by 19 teams, will have good lawyers too.
“Just in case we are not innocent, we will accept what the judge in the Premier League decides.”
