Manchester City Coach Pep Guardiola said he has chosen to remain next season after City breached UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations.

Sky Sports reports that this new development has occurred after speculations came that Guardiola and some top players would leave if City do not have the day after challenging their two-season European ban.

The Spaniard made comments after City’s 2-0 victory over West Ham, reassuring the public that he will remain in the club, and fight tooth and nail against UEFA’s sanctions.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said,  “Personally, no matter what happens I will be here next season,”

“If the club don’t sack me – that can happen – I will stay here 100 per cent, more than ever.

“Firstly, because I want to stay more than the contract I have now. It’s something special, I want to stay, I want to help the club, if it is possible, to maintain this level as much as possible.

“Why should I leave when I said a month ago that I love this club and I like to be here. We spoke with the players and for the next three months here we are going to focus on what we have to do and then we will have to see the sentence.”
