Pep Guardiola wants Manchester City’s financial claims to be resolved “as soon as possible.”

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, stated that he wants the financial allegations brought against the team to be resolved “as soon as possible.”

UEFA’s financial fair play (FFP) rules, as well as Premier League rules on profit and sustainability, were among the more than 100 financial laws that the Premier League said Man City had broken in February.

Man City, which at the weekend won its sixth championship in as many years, was referred to an impartial panel by the league.

The club stated at the time that it was “surprised” to receive the accusations of violations and that it had a “comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence” to back up its claims.

With a spectacular era of domination, unrelenting Manchester City claims to be the Premier League’s greatest team.
“I want the Premier League or the judges to make [a ruling] as quickly as feasible. If we made a mistake, everyone would then be aware of it, Guardiola told reporters on Tuesday.

“Hopefully they are not too busy and the judges can see it and hear from both sides and… decide what is the best,” he continued. “Because in the end, I know fairly what we won, we won on the pitch because we deserve it.”



Due to “serious breaches” of club license and FFP rules in 2020, City was barred from participating in European football competitions for two seasons.

Later, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) overturned the suspension while finding that City had not cooperated with UEFA officials and reducing the original penalties from 30 million euros ($34 million) to 10 million ($11.3 million).

The Abu Dhabi United Group bought Man City in 2008, and since then it has won seven Premier League championships, two FA Cups, and six League Cups.

The squad from this year has a chance to become the first English team since Manchester United in 1999 to simultaneously win the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League.

Guardiola stated that he is “not thinking about leaving” Man City, where he now has a contract that runs through 2025.

“I’d like to stay here for another season. Depending on the outcomes. I would enjoy it, he continued.

Man City plays Brighton on Wednesday and Brentford on Sunday before taking on Manchester United in the FA Cup final and Inter Milan in the Champions League final, having already won the Premier League title.
