Astonishingly, Man City, champions in five of the last six seasons, had their case referred to an independent commission by the Premier League in February after being charged with over 100 breaches of financial rules spanning from 2009/10 to 2017/18, but the club denied the allegations.

Guardiola’s desire to remain as Man City boss

The City manager has reiterated his desire to remain in post and says the club “want to defend our principles”.

Guardiola was adamant that City were innocent when the charges emerged and said the club had already been “condemned” as he put to rest any fears he could be tempted to leave the Etihad.

“I will stay next season,” Guardiola said ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Brighton.

“I will stay. When 100 breaches from the Premier League against us, don’t worry, we will be there.”

As reports suggest the process could stretch on for years, but Guardiola wants a decision to be made quickly “for the benefit of everyone” as the charges cast a negative image over his side’s title celebrations.

Pep is positive about the outcome of the charges

Asked if it had been a frustrating wait, he added: “We accept it is there. If it happens, it happens. So let’s go. Come on, 24 hours, let’s go, sit down, talk, both sides, lawyers present, don’t wait one year, three years, why not do it quickly?
