Pep Guardiola insists that Manchester City will not face a Champions League ban for alleged violations of the financial Fair Fair.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has confirmed this week that a "concrete case" has been investigated and sources have said that a suspension from European competition could follow.
Guardiola said he received assurances from President Khaldoon Al Mubarak and from the CEO Ferran Soriano that the threat of a ban will not be followed.

Football Leaks states that the new documents show a violation of the Financial Fair Fair regulations
"We will not be banned, no," said Guardiola. This is what I think because I trust my president, with my CEO, what they explained to me. I trust them. (But) if it happens, because UEFA decides it, we will accept it and move on. "
City was fined 49 million pounds and her team was blamed for failing the FFP rules four years ago. They have been examined by new documents obtained by Football Leaks.
They claim that the City holding paid £ 59.5 million of Etihad annual sponsorship contracts, with only £ 8 million from the airline.
The city's response to the allegations was: "We will not provide any commentary on out-of-context materials allegedly infringed or stolen by City Football Group and Manchester City staff and associates." The attempt to damage the club's reputation is clear and organized. "
