Pep Guardiola has accused Manchester City’s Premier League rivals of conspiring against them after they were charged with more than 100 breaches of Financial Fair Play regulations.
The City manager believes other clubs have been pushing for City to be punished.
City were hit with 115 charges of relating to FFP breaches dating back to 2009 on Monday.
Asked if he felt other clubs had been driving the matter, Guardiola said at a press conference: “Of course – it is the Premier League. I don’t know why. You have to ask the CEOs, Daniel Levy, these kind of people.”
