Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says the club will not be banned from European competition for Financial Fair Play irregularities.


Pep told the press ahead of their Premier League clash against Chelsa that he has been assured by senior figures at the club that they will not be banned from European competition for Financial Fair Play irregularities.

A German newspaper, Der Spiegel broke the news last month after what City said were "leaks" and an "organized attempt" to smear the club were passed on by the Football Leaks organization.

Reports this week suggested the claims could lead to City being banned should Uefa decide to take action, and a senior figure in European football told the BBC the entire credibility of FFP is at risk if Europe's governing body and the Premier League do not fully investigate the allegations.

"We will not be banned, no," he said.

"That's what I think because of what my chairman and my CEO have explained to me and I trust in them. If it happens, because Uefa decide that, we will accept it and move forward."
