Iran News - - SPORTS -

LON­DON (Dis­patches) - Manch­ester City man­ager Pep Guardi­ola hopes a swift con­clu­sion to UEFA’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion over al­leged Fi­nan­cial Fair Play (FFP) ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties com­mit­ted by the Premier League cham­pi­ons will si­lence the spec­u­la­tion sur­round­ing the case.

UEFA pres­i­dent Alek­sander Ce­ferin said after an Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee meet­ing of Euro­pean foot­ball’s gov­ern­ing body on Mon­day that an in­de­pen­dent body look­ing into the al­le­ga­tions made by Ger­man mag­a­zine Der Spiegel as part of their Foot­ball Leaks cam­paign would pro­vide an­swers “very soon”.

Re­ports on Tues­day claimed City could even be banned from next sea­son’s Cham­pi­ons League should they be found guilty. Guardi­ola in­sisted the story hasn’t been a dis­trac­tion to his play­ers, as they moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League on Tues­day with a 2-1 win at Wat­ford.
