- Manager has always publicly backed his bosses at the Etihad
- ‘I said to them, if you lie to me, the day after I am not here’
Pep Guardiola says he would quit Manchester City if he felt the club’s hierarchy ever lied to him. The Spaniard has always backed his bosses publicly and put his faith in them, even when the club was given a two-year ban from European competitions by Uefa for alleged financial fair play breaches, a suspension that was eventually overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).
“Why did I defend the club and the people? It’s because I work with them,” Guardiola said. “When they are accused of something I ask them: ‘Tell me about that’. They explain and I believe them. I said to them: ‘If you lie to me, the day after I am not here’. I will be out and I will not be your friend anymore.
