Pep Guardiola insisted on Thursday that he has complete confidence in his bosses at Manchester City ahead of UEFA’s ruling on their participation in the Champions League, as his side prepare for this weekend’s FA Cup final against Watford.

City have been referred to UEFA’s adjudicatory chamber for alleged breaches of financial fair-play rules (FFP), where if found guilty they could face expulsion from the Champions League.

It has slightly overshadowed City clinching their second successive Premier League title, while victory at Wembley on Saturday would secure a historic domestic treble, but Guardiola is critical of how his club have been condemned by many already.

“I trust the club and the people,” he said. “I know we won the Premier League and in the last two or three days, people only talked about this (the alleged breaches)”
