Pep Guardiola tells Barcelona to not ‘talk too loud’ over Man City UEFA ban
Pep Guardiola has warned Barcelona not to talk too loud over Manchester City after banned for two seasons on UEFA Champions League for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations.
Pep has issued the warning after Barcelona chief Bartomeu praised UEFA for taking action against Man City earlier this week.
“I would like to thank UEFA regarding FFP,” he said, via Fox Sports.
“They’ve been doing fantastic work in the last couple of years. We have regular investigations and we have supported UEFA in everything it does in football.”
Pep Guardiola was not impressed with Bartomeu comments over their ban, especially he helped Barcelona won the Champions League twice while manager of Barca between 2008 and 2012, adding three La Liga titles and the Copa del Rey twice.
“I don’t know if they spy on me but they know me, it’s not necessary to spy on me,” said the City boss at his press conference after his side’s 2-0 win over West Ham in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.
“If they are happy we are suspended, I say to the president of Barcelona, let us appeal.
“The people [at City] right now trust what they have done so that is what we are going to do. We’re going to appeal and maybe it happens but don’t talk too loud Barcelona.
“That is my advice because everybody is involved sometimes in situations. We are going to appeal and hopefully in the future we can play in the Champions League against Barcelona.”
