According to reports made by the BBC this evening, the English Football Association (FA) have chose to bring charges against Pep Guardiola for wearing a yellow ribbon which breaches the organizations rules on kit and advertising etiquette.

Pep Guardiola breached the governing body's kit and advertising regulations by donning a yellow ribbon as a symbol of support for imprisoned politicians in his native Catalonia.

Pep Guardiola is anxious to play down suggestions that winning his first piece of silverware for Manchester City in Sunday's League Cup final against Arsenal would herald a period of dominance.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed Spanish authorities searched his plane, reportedly on the look-out for exiled Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont.

Guardiola has until March 5 to respond to the charge.

Following events past year surrounding Catalonia's bid to break away from Spain, which included a referendum and a proclamation of independence, both deemed illegal, authorities jailed several leaders of the movement.

But he risks a more serious touchline ban if he wears the yellow ribbon at Wembley this afternoon.

Guardiola's contract was due to expire after next season and City's top brass were told by owner Sheikh Mansour to secure an extension.

"To rebel like that, you have to be something tough to be in prison, and they are still there".

"I hope that the politicians in prison can leave as soon as possible for their families", Guardiola said in a press conference.

"OK, they can suspend me for doing that, but the other people are in jail".

He said: "The police do their job, they have the right to do it".

Guardiola, who has landed 22 major titles since becoming a boss, said: "We have to lift titles to give more value to what we have done". So, until they are not out, always here [points to ribbon] will be shared with me.
