Pep Guardiola & off-book payments at Man City

After the FA Cup final, during Pep Guardiola’s post-match presser with the media, the Spanish boss faced a question he didn’t want to answer.

Man City are facing a possible Champions League ban with regard to alleged breaches of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.

One of the accusations leveled at City is that they paid former manager Roberto Mancini in a questionable fashion.

It’s claimed that Mancini received payments in Abu Dhabi for his work at Man City.

After the Watford game, journalist Rob Harris wanted to find out if Guardiola has ever received off-book payments from Man City.
