Pep Guardiola Responds to Uefa President’s Remarks on Financial Fair Play Charges, Defending Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola has responded to Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin’s recent comments on Manchester City’s alleged Financial Fair Play (FFP) breaches, emphasizing the importance of respecting the ongoing procedures. Ceferin had expressed agreement with Uefa’s initial decision to impose a two-year European football ban on City in 2020, a decision later overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

City is currently challenging allegations from the Premier League regarding financial rule violations. Guardiola, addressing Ceferin’s comments, asserted, “As a lawyer and president of Uefa, he should wait and then do whatever he wants. He has to respect it and understand we have a right to defend ourselves.”

The club faced 115 breaches of Premier League regulations in February last year, and a hearing date has been set for the contested claims, according to Premier League chief executive Richard Masters. However, the exact date remains undisclosed.
