According to Guardiola while speaking on Tuesday at Santiago Bernabeu as they prepare for their next game, City has found out an “irrefutable evidence” that they have not violated FFP regulations.
“We were under suspicion for a long time, we have the right to appeal and I trust the people in my club,” said Guardiola. “They explain the reasons, they showed me the arguments and the proofs. We are optimistic that finally if we deserve to be in the Champions League we can do it next season, if finally, it doesn’t happen we have to accept and move forward.” He said.
“My trust is with the club. I know them. We are going to see what happens with CAS.
