Guardiola Reacts To Critics Attack Following Man-City’s Charge

Must read

Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola finally said his piece concerning the assault launched against his club since the club has been charged by the Premier League for financial breaches.

Recall earlier in the week, Manchester City was reported earlier to have been charged with 101 breaches of financial regulations since the takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, with the punishment a long way from being decided.

Reacting to questions on the development from reporters on Friday, February 10, Guardiola stated that while he feels they’ve already been condemned even though prosecutors are yet to prove the charges, he still believes they are “innocent until proven guilty”. He also express his displeasure over the fact that his club has been castigated without concrete evidence to suggest whether the charges are true or not.

“My thought is that we have already been condemned. Since Monday it is like what happened with UEFA. The club proved that they were completely innocent, why should I think right now, with just charges of suggestions… You have to understand that the 19 teams of the Premier League are accusing us without opportunity to defend ourselves. You know exactly on what side I am.”

Guardiola however assured Manchester City fans that the club through its competent lawyers will argue the case to a reasonable conclusion. Guardiola also promised that the club will accept all judgement the Premier League decide if eventually found guilty.

“We are lucky we live in a society where everybody is innocent until proven guilty. We didn’t have this opportunity. (People say) we are already guilty. I think we have good lawyers but the Premier League – supported by 19 teams – are going to take good lawyers too. If we are not innocent we will accept what the judge or Premier League decide, but what happens if it’s the same as UEFA and we are innocent? What happens to restore our damage?”
