Late on Friday, UEFA confirmed Manchester City have been handed a two-season ban from European competitions for ‘committing serious breaches’ of Financial Fair Play regulations.

The Premier League winners then released a statement stating they would challenge UEFA’s ruling against them.

However, that did not stop reports suggesting Pep Guardiola could leave the club at the end of the season, even though he has a contract until 2021.

Sunday’s edition of Sport claims they have been able to confirm the former Barca manager ‘does not plan’ on leaving the Etihad. In fact, it’s quite the opposite because he is ‘convinced to stay’ at City, despite the UEFA ban.

It’s claimed Guardiola has ‘grown tired’ of reaffirming his commitment to Txiki Begiristain and the club.

City have three tough months ahead of them, but those inside the club remain confident that the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will overturn their ban. 

Sport’s report suggests that irrespective of what happens with CAS, Guardiola remains committed to City.
