BREAKING: Guardiola fined £20000 and handed FA warning over yellow ribbon

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct after admitting to an FA charge of wearing a political message – constituting a breach of the FA’s kit and advertising regulations.

Guardiola was charged by the FA in February for repeatedly wearing a yellow ribbon in support of Catalan independence and was given until 5 March to respond.

After accepting his charge, Guardiola received a fine which equates to around 10% of his weekly earnings and received a warning over future conduct.

A point that may become more significant because the 47-year-old has indicated he will likely continue to wear the ribbon in support of those arrested over a failed independence bid earlier this year.
