Pep Guardiola reaffirms commitment to Manchester City in wake of UEFA ban,I will stay here if not sack
Reports suggested that Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola might leave the club due to the European football’s governing body UEFA banned on the club.
Guardiola has now reaffirmed his unwavering commitment to city while also saying he believed the ban will be overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
Guardiola said after beating West Ham on Wednesday night,‘I’m confident that we’ll play in Europe next season. I’m pretty sure we’ll defend our position.
‘If they don’t sack me, I will stay here more than ever. I want to stay longer than the contract that I have. I want to help the club grow and maintain this level for as long as possible. Why should I leave?’.
UEFA has banned city for the next two champions league season and fined 25 million pounds for alleged breach of Financial fair play rules.
The Catalan,blasted his former boss, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu, who thanked UEFA for following through with Financial Fair Play punishments.
‘It’s not finished, it’s not over,’ Guardiola said. ‘You fight no matter what and the club is going to do that. There are two sides. The club say it is not true. I love this club.’
If they are happy we are suspended, I say to the president of Barcelona, give us two appeals,’ “Don’t talk too loud Barcelona,” that is my advice because everybody is involved in situations.
We are going to appeal and hopefully in the future we can play in the Champions League .‘I ask right now the people trust what they have done against Barcelona.’
If the ban not overturn ,it can cause sale of his star players due to the fact city will be working with a lower budget for the next two seasons.
