Pep Guardiola confirms what he will do if Man City are punished over alleged FFP breaches

Pep Guardiola has revealed what he will do if Manchester City are punished over allegedly breaking Financial Fair Play rules.

Last week, it was confirmed that Everton have been deducted 10 points in the Premier League after breaching Profitability and Sustainability Rules.

In a statement, the Premier League said: “An independent commission has imposed an immediate deduction of 10 points on Everton FC for a breach of the Premier League's Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSRs).

“The Premier League issued a complaint against the club and referred the case to an independent commission earlier this year.”

Since Everton’s punishment was confirmed, attention has switched to City’s potential punishment after it was reported that the club are under investigation for allegedly breaching FFP rules over a period of nine seasons.

Speaking to the media ahead of City’s Premier League clash against Liverpool this weekend, Guardiola was asked about his future if the champions are found guilty. You can watch the footage below.

He said: “I will not consider my future if we are in League One, I will be more likely to stay.”

On Everton’s charges, he said: “I'm not going to say one word about Everton because I don't know the reality of what happened. They are two completely different cases. I know people are saying why don't City go to the Conference but let's wait.

“You read it and we should be relegated of course, but nobody knows. All the people who say it don’t know exactly what happened. I haven’t read it all. But wait, what I said a month ago – if we’ve done something wrong we’ll be punished. After what will be done, I will be here, the case for Everton and I don’t know what happened but it’s a completely different one. That’s why you cannot compare it.”
