Pep Guardiola ‘definitely leaving’ Man City – fans stunned as club BANNED from the Champions League for breaching FFP – The Sun

FANS have been left stunned by the announcement that Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League.

And one question is now on the lips of every supporter – what about Pep Guardiola?

The brilliant coach's future is suddenly up in the air with the club facing two years out of all Uefa competitions.

They are also facing a £25million fine.

Man City will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport but shocked City fans are unclear on where their club goes from here – and rival fans appear more than happy to stick the boot in.

The terms ' Pep's Gone' and 'That's Pep Out' became top trends on Twitter, with fans flooding in to mock the oil-rich club.

Bookies Ladbrokes now have Guardiola odds-on to leave the Etihad before the start of next season.

Here is some of the best reaction below.

City were found guilty by Uefa’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) of falsely inflating their sponsorship revenues when submitting accounts as part of the FFP compliance process.

A statement from the club said: "Manchester City is disappointed but not surprised by today’s announcement by the Uefa Adjudicatory Chamber.

"The club has always anticipated the ultimate need to seek out an independent body and process to impartially consider the comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence in support of its position.

"In December 2018, the Uefa Chief Investigator publicly previewed the outcome and sanction he intended to be delivered to Manchester City, before any investigation had even begun.

"The subsequent flawed and consistently leaked Uefa process he oversaw has meant that there was little doubt in the result that he would deliver.

"The club has formally complained to the Uefa Disciplinary body, a complaint which was validated by a CAS ruling.

“Simply put, this is a case initiated by Uefa, prosecuted by Uefa and judged by Uefa.

"With this prejudicial process now over, the Club will pursue an impartial judgement as quickly as possible and will therefore, in the first instance, commence proceedings with the Court of Arbitration for Sport at the earliest opportunity."
