Man City boss Guardiola: We're innocent!

"It was not to offend the people about what happened in Hillsborough or the guy over what happened against Roma", Guardiola said in his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final with Watford.

"I'm not too much concerned or anxious about what people say", City boss Guardiola previously insisted when questioned whether the investigations threaten to taint his legacy at the club.

City's title celebrations, and the build-up to Saturday's final, have also been overshadowed by the emergence of a video which appears to show players singing a song about Liverpool fans being "battered in the street".

"We can not imagine what we would have done without [Aymeric] Laporte in this competition". But to win in the way they have done surely has to count for more, and even if that elusive UEFA Champions League title continues to evade them, they have to be considered one of the greatest teams in European history, let alone English history. Purely, that's how I felt at the time.

"I accept that we want to be there and deserve to be there but to be the best ever?"

"I'm desperate, desperate, desperate to win the FA Cup".

Progression to the final totalises €47 million (adding up last 16, quarter final and semi-final payments), with the Champions League victor getting €4 million, a further €3.5 million for contesting the UEFA Super Cup in August and then a final €1 million to whoever lifts the trophy.

"The Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) chief investigator, after having consulted with the other members of the independent investigatory chamber of the CFCB, has chose to refer Manchester City FC to the CFCB adjudicatory chamber following the conclusion of his investigation", UEFA said in a statement on Friday.

"To be in the final, that's massive and people might say it's just another cup, but for us to be in the final is a massive achievement", Sterling said. You are not going to extend his contract because you don't want him. The Spaniard will look to restrict Oleksandr Zinchenko and Raheem Sterling from finding space and time on the ball. In the first game we lost 2-1 but we competed until the end and had chances at the end.

He said: "Every player has to feel, "I have to play good or I don't play".

But with the contract remaining unsigned, Guardiola refused to confirm that Sane will still be at the club next season. "We spoke with Vinny and we are going to speak after this game". It is top. The problem is the period between November and February and March. "When he is fit he is incredible".
