Guardiola bows to FA rules despite disagreement

first_img“They are the rules, they have them and they apply them so I accept the decision because I have to,” Guardiola said on Tuesday as he addressed the media ahead of City’s Champions League clash with Basel once again wearing the yellow ribbon.Guardiola will still be free to wear the ribbon in Champions League games as UEFA have a different set of rules to the FA.“I am in this country working and under the rules, but that doesn’t mean that I agree whether they are right or wrong,” added Guardiola.“Many times in history after some time we see that decisions taken were not just.”Guardiola also rebuked FA chief executive Martin Glenn for failing to understand the significance of the yellow ribbon.Glenn publicly apologised for controversial comments comparing the Jewish Star of David with symbols such as the Nazi swastika as the FA’s reasoning for banning political symbols worn by players or coaches.However, he also claimed the yellow ribbon was “a symbol of Catalan independence”, which Guardiola strongly denied.“The first impression when I hear that is because he doesn’t understand what that means the yellow ribbon, what is symbolises,” added Guardiola.“Maybe now he will realise what it means. It’s not about independence or not independence, it is not about that.“It is about the four people or more people that are in jail and they didn’t do absolutely anything.”The former Barcelona manager has been a long-standing campaigner for Catalonia to be handed a referendum on the issue of independence.His high-profile stance has become a major talking point and, according to Spanish media reports, the City manager’s private plane was even searched at Barcelona’s El Prat airport two weeks ago by police looking for exiled Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s Spanish manager Pep Guardiola wears a yellow ribbon pinned to his jumper as he attends a press conference at the City Football Academy in Manchester, north west England on March 6, 2018, on the eve of their UEFA Champions League round of sixteen second leg football match against FC Basel.Guardiola has said he wears a yellow ribbon to support imprisoned pro-independence politicians in his native Catalonia. © AFP / OLI SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 6 – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insisted he will live by the English Football Association’s (FA) rules even if he doesn’t agree with an FA charge for wearing a yellow ribbon in support of imprisoned pro-independence campaigners in his native Catalonia.On Monday, Guardiola admitted the FA charge of wearing a political symbol, which he has sported since a number of Catalan politicians and civil society leaders were remanded in custody in October.last_img read more

I am not qualified to become BCCI president, says Sourav Ganguly

first_imgFormer India captain and incumbent Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Sourav Ganguly said on Friday that he does not meet the qualification criteria required for the Indian cricket board’s top job.Shashank Manohar quit as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president on Tuesday and it is currently looking for his replacement. Manohar was on Thursday elected unopposed as the International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman.Ganguly needed to attend atleast three Annual General Meetings (AGM) to be in the race for BCCI’s top post. He formally took over the reins at the CAB on October 15 last year after the demise of Jagmohan Dalmiya.”I don’t think I meet the qualification criteria, have only been the CAB president for 6-7 months,” Ganguly told reporters at the inauguration of Bandhan Bank’s Park Street branch.Asked as to who he believes will eventually succeed Manohar, the 43-year-old said: “Difficult to say. There are a lot of experienced people who can take up the job, I am not thinking about it.”The former India skipper was recently in the news for raising a question about present India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Ganguly has asked if the selectors see Dhoni as the leader till the 2019 World Cup.But on Friday, he was seen lauding the efforts of the prolific wicket-keeper batsman. Dhoni is presently leading Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Rising Pune Supergiants who so far have had a disastrous season.”He is an unbelievable captain (Dhoni). It is just a tournament (IPL). It is a new franchise and a lot of their key players have been injured. Kevin Pietersen, Mitchell Marsh all have had injuries, so it becomes difficult for a side to perform without a settled line up,” Ganguly said.advertisementlast_img read more
