“They wanted that position” Man City manager Pep Guardiola claps back at nine PL clubs who wanted them kicked out from Champions League

Pep Guardiola attended the most awaited press conference ahead of the Premier League clash against Aston Villa as reporters threw fiery questions about Man City’s charge of breaching fair play regulations.

The governing bodies of Premier Leaguer filed official accusations against Man City over violation of more than 100 financial fair play regulations after thoroughly investigating the activities for four years.

However, other PL clubs already raised their vocals about the punishment Man City should face and demanded severe penalties leaving Pep Guardiola frustrated as he felt verdict without proof is something injustice happening to them.

“Whilst we wait for UEFA to make a sentence against us, nine teams – Burnley, Wolves, Leicester, Newcastle, Spurs, Arsenal [Manchester] United, Liverpool, Chelsea – [wanted City] out of the Champions League. They wanted that position.”- Guardiola fumed.

The Spanish-born and former Barcelona manager have a contract that will keep him at Man City until 2025 and the maestro wanted to leave if anything remains hidden from him from the clubs.

However, the 52-year-old is in complete trust with City Football Group, the hierarchy of Man City and he is fed up with other clubs putting their nose to the situation which is wisely inappropriate.

“I am not moving from this seat. I can assure you more than ever that I want to stay. Yes! More than ever. I will have an even bigger influence on the club. I will show them what Man City is all about.”- the Man City boss further added.

Aston Villa has a trip to the Etihad on February 12 which proved to be vital for Guardiola’s men in terms of the Premier League title race after they dropped points against Spurs through Harry Kane’s only goal of the match.

Arsenal is sitting top of the table with five points lead and a game in hand, it is promised to be one heck of a fight when the two sides meet at the Emirates Stadium on February 16.
