MANCHESTER City manager Pep Guardiola has defiantly worn a yellow ribbon in support of jailed pro-independence Catalan politicians during his side’s 3-0 League Cup final victory over Arsenal at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

The 47-year-old Spaniard was charged by the Football Association this week over his continued wearing of the ribbon – English soccer’s governing body saying it broke their rules on political messages.

Former Barcelona manager Guardiola has until March 5 to answer the charge but made an impassioned defence of his action when asked about it by reporters. “I accept if I broke the rules, I accept the fine. I am a human being, it’s about humanity. There are four guys in prison, plus other guys (in exile) apparently for sedition, but for that you have to have weapons, and we don’t have weapons.
